… to spend time on different kinds of farms… large and small rural farms, smaller urban farms, backyard gardens; east coast, west coast, and central farms. I want to expose myself to as many aspects of farming and gardening that I can. It might be worth noting that at this time I am not very interested in learning about livestock as its application to the urban environment may prove to be difficult.
Maybe after my 6 months leave is over I will apply this new found knowledge to feed my family, feed my friends, a community, and grow really great tasty food!
Maybe I will turn this entire R&D project into a branch of the business that will support a restaurant. I am very hopeful my endeavours may compliment my husband’s work.
However, if after my 6 month mission is over… if I never plant another seed, then my efforts will not have been in vain, as I will have spent my 6 month in peace.
