My tour of Czech WWOOF farms

My tour of Czech WWOOF farms
In the frame of my European Voluntary Service, I am partly in charge, among other projects, of promoting WWOOFing in Czech Republic. One good way to do so and to get to know more the WWOOF hosts in the country is to meet them directly at their place, spending some time with them and when possible giving a hand. I started this summer with the separate visit of two farms in the Utecky county; the experience had been really great. Last month I started this proper tour by visiting the north of Stredocesky county. více
