Those who are interested to do Wwoof (Willing Workers of Organic Farm) in Korea, you may notice the changes in processing fee (Thanks to Jaja for the tip! ^^)

Here is my correspondent with Wwoof Korea.

Hi Wwoof Officer,

I have registered for Wwoof on 2009 for 50,000 won inclusive of the host list book and host connection service.

Just would like to clarify based on the current information in Wwoof Korea website that now we need to pay 95,000 won in total?


And their reply

Dear Jani Zarina,

Thank you so much for your interest in WWOOF Korea!

We, WWOOF Korea have around 53 farms on the listing and farms are scattered around the country. Tasks can be varied depending on farms and seasons.

Once you pay the registration fee, we will send you ID and PASSWORD so that you can check all of hosts information on our website.

If you need a book, pay $15 more.
I will send a membership book to you once you make a payment.
I believe that you will be able to receive the book within two weeks.

WWOOF generally do it by WWOOFers.
WWOOFers make their schedule and contact the hosts so we recently have changed the system.
Feel free to ask me if you have a more questions,

Warm regards,

Post a Comment

Salam akak,

Thanks akak for this. Tp nape email reply tak sentuh pasai increases of processing fees. Heheh...

Akak, dia ckp if we need book we hv to pay $15 kan.

Do you think it is compulsary for us Wwoofers to hv this book?

Or is it enough with information they provided on their website?

W'salam Jaja,
She did mention the increase as in clause "we recently have changed the system" but not specifically on the amount.

Last time, 50,000 won is inclusive of the book and host contact.

I guess now, we need to go green, reduce paper usage and DIY contacting the host ourselves.

It's gonna be hard if the host speak zero English though. Aigoo..hehe

habislah kalau kena deal sendiri dgn host.aigoo~~ hehe...

kena guna sehabis basic english yg bole atau pun kena guna khidmat kawan2 korea yg ada...

Hi Anonymous,
wwoof member - 50,000 won
wwoof contact by office - 30,000 won
wwoof book - 10,000 won.

Please prepare roughly RM2,000 for a month trip if you don't shop. You can get by with that amount for transportation and a little food because wwoof host will give food and acommodation while you stay with them.

As always set aside some emergency money.
