Today is the last day of our apprenticeship. We're sad to be leaving the farm and all of the good times and memories we have had here. This apprenticeship has taught us many things (more than we expected). We planted, we weeded, we hoed, we cared for and tied tomato plants, we cared for the farm animals, we deep cleaned rooms, we painted walls, we learned about dog competitions, we cooked and we cleaned. It was wonderful to experience the Land School in the summertime in a smaller group. Not only have we learned a lot, but we've enjoyed our time here and wish we could stay longer.
Thanks to Shyamoli for sharing the photos!
