Cultural and Self-Sustaining Immersion in the South of France

World-Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms in France (WWOOF France) offers the opportunity to choose from 800 hosted projects located throughout the country. The program strives to bring awareness to alternative lifestyles by welcoming volunteers to work closely with professionals on particular projects while living in a self-sufficient household. For this segment, I will focus on my experience working and living on three different farms in the south of France while using WWOOF France’s interrelationship with the francophone culture to continuously develop my french language skills.
