TC3 Sustainable Farming Student Perspectives – Justin
This class is one of my favorite classes I’ve ever taken. It shows you a whole other side of where your food comes from and it is one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done. It is a very good feeling to harvest or plant something, which takes time and effort, to see it finished makes you feel great. Harvesting potatoes is something I won’t forget because it’s very physical and time consuming but when your done and all the beds are clear you can look back and see that you actually did something that is noticeable.
I think this program is great for people who enjoy hands on work, it is a great work environment and it can teach you a lot of interesting things even if you don’t know it’s the path you want to take. I had never even been on a farm before I started the program but I ended up loving it and can see a future for myself in this field. recommend this to anyone who wants too try something different because it will pay off.
