Don't know if this will help but it is the homepage for wwoofers on which
it lists various countries of participation.
Would like to employ them ourselves but are not yet ready.
Hope this helps.

Thanks, Kathy! I know WWOOF, we've hosted lots of WWOOFERS over the
years. What I'm looking for is "WWOOF List," as our applicants for
WOOFING at our farm are coming fewer and fewer inbetween and always
from folks who are using outdated WWOOF books. Which tells me that we
probably aren't on a 'list' any longer, and yet we seem to be on
every list that we know of. So..HELP!!
Thanks, though! -Allan
