Did you know WWOOF started in the UK in 1971? Since then it has spread far and wide; with more than 12,000 hosts in over 100 countries. National WWOOF groups have always networked on an informal level, but in 2013 for the first time ever they have come together to create a formal Federation of WWOOF Organisations (www.wwoof.net), the official representative body for WWOOF at an international level. This was a momentous event in the history of WWOOF and we wanted to mark it as such.
So we ran a competition to find a logo for WWOOF. We said we were looking for...
"An iconic design which represents the cooperative global community of WWOOF to celebrate the newly formed Federation of WWOOF Organisations."
We were delighted to receive more than 250 entries of a very high quality from all over the world. Thank you to each and everyone of you who joined in this process
The winning design was produced by David Ritare from Sweden.
And here it is ....
David will see his design incorporated into all FoWO materials shortly - and is currently thinking about which FoWO affiliated WWOOF group he is going to take out complementary membership with. Congratulations David!
