Daily observations in the field, walking along the row and beds of plants is a learning experience. Plunging a pitchfork into the compost pile every day is a learning experience.
Consider life on a farm to be a totally immersive learning experience. We are all learning everyday, by paying attention to the plants, animals, fungi and microbes around us.
An intern here has self discipline to study and research the topics they are more drawn to. The lessons of the farm are taught by hands on experience with the various crops, in the field, in the kitchen, at market, in the fermentation tanks. A typical week includes:
Monday morning meet
