Host Grant

Since 2011 WWOOF Portugal is giving a grant of 500 euros to a host farm. Here are the Host grant winners of the previous years:



Implement and run a forest garden based both on experience with market gardening and Ernst Gotsch's syntropic agriculture.


Due to a severe fire that totally destroyed one host farm at Madeira Island we donate the amount of the grant directly to them without opening a contest.


This year the price went to organize a free workshop and to build a clay WWOOFers house.


This host was sponsored to build a 10.000 liters water tank and 700 meters of irrigation system.
This project will allow the host to expand their vegetable garden and have less work during the long dry season.


Sponsoring a shower block with the water supplied from the river using a RAM pump, heated using the power of the sun and recycled to irrigate the crops afterwards.


This grant went to build a roof and buy some solar equipment on a farm on Central Portugal.
They completed the project with success and the WWOOFers can enjoy now a beautiful outside kitchen!


The grant went initially to dig a lake that will provide a rain water reservoir. As the host underestimated the budget necessary to build the lake, he gave up the grant.
The grant was redirected to the second place to build a clay house to function as a kitchen with an extra room for cheese production and storage.
