World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms (WWOOF) is a hospitality service operated by a loose network of national organizations that facilitate homestays on organic farms.

WWOOF aims to provide volunteers (often called "woofers") with first-hand experience in organic and ecologically sound growing methods, to help the organic movement; and to let volunteers experience life in a rural setting or a different country. WWOOF volunteers generally do not receive money in exchange for services. The host provides food, lodging, and opportunities to learn, in exchange for assistance with farming or gardening activities.
