CSA Winner 2015

Joint winners of the Cornwall Sustainability Awards 2015 in the category “Best Contribution to a Sustainable Food Economy – From Nature to Plate”.

Over the last 5 years we have welcomed volunteers from all over the world to Bosavern Community Farm and have learnt so much from them.

WWOOF stands for Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms and WWOOFers help with a wide variety of work on the farm; from feeding our chickens to weeding, harvesting, construction and maintenance and helping in our farm shop.

WWOOFers stay in the farmhouse with hosts Pete and Nikki and gain a valuable insight into how a real, working community farm operates and learn some excellent new skills, not least of which is cooking for a group of hungry fellow volunteers, as meals are usually communal events.

We do need you to be a member of the UK WWOOF organisation and apply through their website, as we get booked up well in advance.
