Sydney here. I'm excited to be working on this project again after taking a semester break. Last semester I was working with the non-profit, Friends of Strays Animal Shelter, and found that working with animals is a lot like working with children-- they desire a lot of attention and are smelly. Only kidding! :) But, seriously, I really did miss working in the garden and with humans again.
My time at the garden is reflective. I find educating difficult at times because I myself might not know how to answer a question from a first gardener. But, at other times I find it exhilarating to share my knowledge. Children have very distinct faces when they are thinking and beginning to understand new information and it's a face that I hope to see throughout my career path. As I mentioned before, I am excited to be back on this project because it has helped me to understand my true passion in life, education. Have a great weekened everyone!
PS: This bird was sitting on a tree right next to me at dinner the other night. He was very chill.
