Yes - but you must WWOOF together and expect to share a room or other accommodation. You must take the '2 person joint WWOOFer or family' membership which costs 35 euro. We define a family as a family unit with children up to18 years old.

It is also possible to add a third member to a joint account. We don't recommend this as many host will not be able to accommodate you. If you must stay together, subscribe to a joint account and a single account. Contact us with names of both accounts and the email addresses and we will join them so they both appear on the joint profile page.

There is a 'Email Host' button on the host's home page. If it is not working and you get the 'Oops' page, the host does not want e-mail contact so you must write or telephone.

From the 'Email Host' button, you can write a short message. It is a good idea to include the dates when you are available, and any information that is not already in your profile. When the host receives the message, they will be able to view your profile on this site and reply to you.
