What I liked
The ability to learn through first-hand experience. I shadowed my mentor on the days I worked on the farm, and worked solo on campus on my personal day. I was able to gain knowledge in many aspects of farm ecosystems and our greater worldy ecosystem; subjects included composting, permaculture, plant reproduction, soil health, and crop maintenance. As well, my mentor was very flexible with scheduling and accomadating, which allowed for a productive environment.
