The Experience

The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings. – Masanobu Fukuoka If you have a dream of owning a farm, or garden, someday but have never actually farmed, then this program is designed to help you decide if this lifestyle is for you. This is a workshare program to give you some experience and knowledge of what it takes to have a farm or large garden.

This experience introduced me to permaculture, and what it's like to live with very little. I got to laugh a lot and eat from the garden behind Rich's place. I did get ill a little in the beginning so my tasks were reduced until I got better. It took me 3-4 days to really start liking my experience as I've never lived like this before. After that it felt very natural and I enjoyed living with the bugs and animals and nature. I'd say if you are really interested in permaculture then take Rich's course, because as a volunteer we got a little of it with the tasks given to us.
