WWOOF stands for World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms and the students will discuss their experiences as volunteers on organic farms across the U.S. and around the world. They will also present information on how others can do the same, using WWOOFing as a means to travel and experience local cultures.
All FGPC workshops and lectures are free and open to the public. Space is limited, so those who plan to attend are encouraged to RSVP to Courtney Siegert at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The FGPC will accept donations to fund garden activities, but they are not required. More information about the series and the FGPC can be found at this website.
