Why farming? I love growing things because it is the only activity where I forget everything else and get lost in my work. I chose to pursue farming to improve my health (physical, mental, spiritual), community, and environment.
Do you have previous experience in this field? No hands-on experience aside from gardening.
Favorite farm-related task… Dibbling! Potting up seedlings and listening to music.
Least favorite farm task… So far, dealing with the fish emulsion/algae mix.
Music I like to listen to while working in the fields… Reggae Music. And Kings Of Leon.
What I hope to be doing in 5 years… Working at/running a seasonal agriculture-related business and traveling in the off-season.
On a day off you can find me... On the beach or on the hiking trail.
Hobbies/activities I enjoy… Reading, long-boarding, and playing guitar.
Unusual talent… I know a little sign language
Fun fact about me… I am a former peanut butter addict (Jif Natural only)
