TC3 Sustainable Farming Student Perspectives – Hailey
This last semester at TC3 as part of the Farm to table/Sustainable Agriculture program has been, I believe, my greatest academic experience thus far. I have learned more in this last semester than I have in any other given year or semester of school. As for background information my name is Hailey and I am from California, I have no background farming but my first experiences gardening started very young and pursued me all of my life. After working on another organic upstate NY farm over the summer I fell in love and decided it was the right path for me. After my first semester in the Farming Program I couldn’t be more excited to begin a career as a farmer in the food system.
