"Growing with the Organic Movement: Perspectives from WWOOF Farms across the USA" by Camille B. Glenn

The stories shared in this book provide an inside look at numerous small organic farms across America where farmers are applying sustainable living principles to create a healthy lifestyle and are sharing their knowledge with eager volunteers who travel from all over the world to experience organic farming and sustainable living first hand through WWOOF-Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms. These traveling WWOOFers of all ages currently do work exchanges on over 1600 US farms -and their numbers are growing every day.


GROWING WITH THE ORGANIC MOVEMENT looks into the unique culture of WWOOFing, primarily through the eyes and experiences of these WWOOF farm hosts across America, while also offering some information regarding the volunteer WWOOFers, and exploring the relationship of WWOOF to the organic movement and sustainable living. 


If you are an organic farmer-rural or urban, or if you are transitioning into organic agriculture, or even just considering this, you will learn what experienced farmers have already experienced though their participation in the WWOOF programs. Readers can gain insight into being or becoming successful farm hosts, and volunteers will have a better understanding of what to expect from their WWOOF experiences.
