WILLING WORKERS ON LOCAL FARMS (WWOLF)

WWOLF (Willing Workers on Local Farms) gathers ‘packs’ of volunteers from the
community to spend a day working on a local farm. In exchange for helping out with farm
chores and various projects, farmers prepare and share a meal with the volunteers that is
made with their very own farm fresh products.

If you are interested in participating in WWOLF please join our mailing list (click on the “sign up for newsletter” button on the homepage) and keep your eye on Central Oregon Locavore News. Children are welcome, but must be supervised at ALL times!
