Interested in sustainable development? Nature? The environment? Have plans for the summer yet? If you're looking for a great opportunity, check out our panel discussion on Sunday, March 2, 2008 about WWOOF, World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms! Meet Columbia studnets who've WWOOFed on farms throughout the world. We'll have pictures of their travels and free, eco-friendly snacks!

WWOOFing offers you the chance to live and work on a farm in one of over twenty countries. You get free, delicious food and lodging in exchange for a few hours of manual labor. It's a great way to see the world and learn about sustainable agriculture.
