Central Oregon Locavore Launches WWOLF Program


Central Oregon Locavore has released the summer schedule for our free, on-farm volunteer work parties, known as Willing Workers on Local Farms (WWOLF). Inspired by the global WWOOF movement, or Willing Workers on Organic Farms in which volunteers are connected with organic farms around the world to provide labor in exchange for housing and agricultural training, Locavore’s WWOLF program operates with the goal of lending a hand to local farmers and ranchers while educating participants about the true nature of local food. WWOLF gathers ‘packs’ of volunteers to spend a day working on various projects in exchange for a farm-fresh meal and a day spent in the garden working alongside community, giving farmers a boost to accomplish time-sensitive, seasonal tasks.

Registration for WWOLF programs is required. Free registration is available on our website at centraloregonlocavore.org. Stay tuned for more dates as summer approaches by following us on our social media accounts, @centraloregonlocavore!

Upcoming dates and locations:

  • Sunday, May 19 at Fields Farm: Potato Planting
  • Saturday, May 25 at Well Rooted Produce: Pumpkin Planting
  • Friday, June 28 at Mahonia Gardens: Weeding & Harvesting
    *Other tasks will be made available based on participant age and ability.
