Through the WWOOF Sweden platform, Hosts and volunteers pay an annual membership fee, 25€ for volunteers and 30€ for Hosts, to participate in the exchange program in order to help maintain and expand the WWOOF Sweden network. Upon gaining access to the list , WWOOFers search for a compatible Host farm. When they have found a strong match, they contact a Host directly to discuss each other’s expectations. At this point it is best for a Host to look up a WWOOFers profile in order to learn more about them and to verify their WWOOF membership. You can find any member registered with us by entering their name or email address in our search bar in the WWOOFers list.
Some farms will have inquiring WWOOFers fill out a questionnaire in order to learn more about them and see if they are a good fit. We also recommend that you schedule a phone or Skype conversation in which you get to know each other, as well as communicate your expectations and listen to theirs. We believe that phone calls provide open, direct communication that otherwise may get lost in translation through e-mail and online chat programs. This first point-of-contact allows you to hash out an arrangement that is beneficial for both you and your prospective WWOOFer.
