WWOOF Portugal went to Denmark

Oct 24, 2022

Between the 6th and 9th of October, WWOOF Portugal went to Denmark to participate to the European WWOOF Coordinator Meeting. We were around 30 people representing Europe: France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, the Federation itself and WWOOF USA was there too. The Meeting was held in Svendborg, at a sweet and rustic farm.

It has been 3 intense days where we spoke about the new Common WWOOF Platform, also the role and identity of WWOOF organisations. We shared about the 2030 vision (add a new “supporter member” membership for all of those people who
wish to support and be a part of WWOOF, An in house IT and PR staff or WWOOF to act as a voice and advocate for small-scale organic farmers at an international level, among many other…) and how to achieve the many goals. We exchanged and brainstormed around and for more good practices…

We had a sunny day to go to the little sweet and perfect Island called Stryno. There we visited 2 WWOOF Hosts: a wine producer and an apple Juice producer. And at night, we went to a local venue to assist to a rock concert!!

We also had such great food including the Typical herring.

And lots of fun!!
Now we are back in Portugal, full of energy and good practices to implement!
