Traveling between WWOOF Italia farms without using cars

VieWWOOF project
Roads without engines to join the network of farms

WWOOF Italia ( is an association, founded in 1999 and which now has a network of approximately 700 farms / educational centres. WWOOF Italia host farms practice natural farming as a lifestyle choice and they accommodate their members from all around the world, to collaborate and to learn about organic farming.
Travel between these farms in an environmentally friendly way and therefore in keeping with our values, is an idea that came to some members and friends of WWOOF Italia and who are developing a project encouraging sustainable ways to travel. 
The project VieWWOOF aims to identify and then map out routes – which will then be available for all to use- that connect WWOOF Italia farms, thus creating a network of communication routes for walking, cycling, by horse/donkey and eventually by public transport and finding hospitality in stop overs en route.
To strengthen exchanges within the WWOOF network and its various geographical areas, using an easy and economical method, with consultation, sharing and encouraging an inexpensive and natural way of moving around and traveling. Traversing an area, we get to know it better, with it’s silences and it’s natural environment / culture, the care of which is the starting point of any natural farming. The network, starting with WWOOF farms, will open up the territory and also other existing routes, making them more available to a growing nation of walkers. 
The promoters of VieWWOOF are a group of people, all of whom are enthusiasts of sustainable mobility, nature, geography and cartography. They are the WWOOF coordinators Dino (Arezzo Perugia), Francesco (Florence), Marzia (Rome), Basil (WWOOF Independents), in collaboration with our WWOOF friends Niccolo Gori Sassoli & Marco Saverio Loperfido. The project is a collaborative one of walkable and accessible pathways and routes throughout Italy, which was conceived and initiated by Marco through the site
The preparation of the project will be based on first encounter with a walk, on an experimental basis, to which WWOOF members are invited along with any other interested people.
