“I love working at the sharing farm as it gives balance to my life. The work I do during the winter months is extremely stressful and demanding. Often I am working 10-12 hour days, five to six days a week. Fortunately, I get to leave that life behind when spring comes and my life transforms to a much more peaceful and relaxing one. Working at the farm helps me to lead a more
intentional and contemplative life. I look forward to going to the farm on Thursdays and I have learned to value food a lot more, too.
I am now amember of a community garden and grow my own vegetables. As well, I have made good friends with my fellow volunteers. My life wouldn’t be as full if I wasn’t a part of this community of caring people doing good work.”
