Jan Philipp – President of the International FoWO Federation: His meeting with WWOOF Germany in 2007 guided his life choices: a passion for bees, for goats, studies in agriculture and, of course, a lot of time and energy dedicated to the WWOOF movement!

January 2022 - Calendar WWOOF

WWOOF has been part of my life since 2007. When I finished my studies, the annual Pentecost meeting of WWOOF Germany took place near my hometown and it motivated me to visit WWOOF farms in Germany and Spain for a whole year. The experiences I had there determined everything I did later: my studies in agricultural science at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences in Vienna, my passion for bees, a “goat year” at the Reimehof in Bavaria and of course my commitment to WWOOF Germany. One of my activities is to visit WWOOF hosts – and aspiring WWOOF hosts – so I formed a

group within the WWOOF organisation to keep in contact with hosts all over Germany. I have been a WWOOF Germany councillor since 2012, later I joined the board of FoWO (Federation of WWOOF Organisations) and in October 2021 I was appointed president of the Federation.      Over the years (and by passing through so many inspiring places) I got to know the essence of WWOOF: to learn about and share a rural way of life. Working together in friendship. The willingness to help others acquire new skills. And the motivation to live close to nature. Jan-Philipp, WWOOF German
