WWOOF Canada Photo Contest Winners!

Sep 13, 2022

The last few months we’ve put the call out to our members to show (and tell) the world how WWOOFing has made a difference in their life. We asked them to take to social media to tell a story or share photos from their time on the farm. We’ve been ecstatic at how the community has responded – we have been moved and inspired. Below we’ve listed our favourites from those submitted:
