5 Comments So Far

  1. Hehe, sounds like it’s time to do something quiet, or move on? I got a smart phone (supposedly smart…) the other day and I was thrilled by the fact that I can also now listen to music while I work! But then I was in the garden, weeding, the sun was shining, the birds were singing – and I didn’t want to listen to music. I wanted to listen to birds. I think it’s great to talk to people, but everyone ought to also know how to be quiet and be comfortable with silence. Silence between people can be awkward, but it can also be so comfortable, you don’t NEED to talk to be together, you can just be.
    Glad you made it back home safely, I’ll write you more tomorrow…

  2. I love Lusty the Lawnmower! He/she’s belly looks like what mine will look like soon! 😀

    I also love hearing your descriptions of the different volunteers. So fun. And your hilarious description of everyone talking endlessly. 😛

    So nice to finally see pictures and hear stories of where you’ve been for the past few weeks!

  3. I am sad that your volunteering to the farm seem not to have given you a positive experience at all. But I am glad to have stumbled upon your blog article because it is an eye opener for me as the farm owner responsible for the volunteer program. Thank you for writing about your experience at the farm! It gives us ideas on how we could be better as host, so in the future we can have satisfied volunteers leaving the farm at the end of their volunteering period.

    Reading this blog provides an opportunity for learning – there is much wisdom to gain from people’s comments and feedbacks. It provides seeds of ideas on how to do things better. The farm encounters are a learning experience for everyone, the farm management included.So feedbacks are not just feedbacks. They serve important purposes. I have to admit, it is not not heart warming to read this blog but indeed motivating.
