The Statute and the Internal Rules of the association
There are two important documents that you need to read: Becoming a member means you have accepted these documents and share their content. The statute is quite long and complex, but we recommend you take a look at the main issues and to keep it as a reference for when you have doubts. These rules state in a practical way the various activities, the rights and the obligations of members. It is good that your are informed of these also so that you can respect and explain them to the other members with whom you come in contact.
and you should also read this illustrated document to understand what WWOOFing is and ISN’T all about,
Registration for WWOOF Italy allows you to WWOOF only in Italy! If you want to WWOOF in other countries you can find the complete list of WWOOF associations around the world on www.wwoof.net.
WWOOF Italy provides insurance coverage to our members and it is included in the membership fee. This is valid for one year and only when you are on farms which are on the current WWOOF Italia list. For this reason it is important to consult the updated list on-line, especially in the transition from one year to the next (the membership for the farms expires in December and is not always renewed). The insurance policy is essential because it covers accidents and liability insurance at a minimal cost. Members who are resident in Italy are also covered for WWOOFing activities abroad. For more information please visit the page on insurance.
