Sue Coppard, Founder of WWOOF (Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms)
Sue Coppard is founder of WWOOF, a worldwide network that links volunteers with organic farms. In return for volunteer help, WWOOF hosts offer volunteers food, accommodation and opportunities to learn about organic lifestyles. WWOOF was borne out of Sue's desire to periodically escape her life as a London secretary and spend time in the countryside. Today WWOOF is a global movement, with over 50,000 volunteers helping out on 7,000-plus host farms in more than 100 countries.
