Why I applied for the Farm Educator Apprenticeship: I want to deepen my knowledge about small-scale organic agriculture, especially chickens and goats. This will make me a better educator, as well as a better world citizen. I also hope to learn more about Judaism and it’s intersection with a healthy environment.
Delight at the beauty of seeds lovingly planted in gardens and hearts alike drew Shivonne, age 31, to join the farm at Eden Village. She hails from the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Boone, North Carolina. Her favorite food is quickly becoming the meals she prepares with so much love for the ones she loves!
I am Casey. I am 22 years old, from Cleveland, Ohio. My favorite food is pesto pasta. I recently graduated from The Ohio State University. In my time there, I worked for the Office of Sustainability, studied Environmental Geography, and did many forms of environmental advocacy and activism. I traveled to Peru, where I studied Indigenous Spirituality and Permaculture. When I returned home, I became certified in permaculture. Through sustainable agriculture I have discovered how fulfilling it is to grow food and develop a deeper relationship with the food that we eat as well as the the earth, and one-another while getting our hands dirty, empowering ourselves, and working towards self-resiliency. I chose to apply for the Farm Educator Apprenticeship because I see it as an opportunity to spend time doing exactly all of that and more. I enjoy working with kids, being creative and goofy, building community, doing yoga, dance, art, travel, cooking, drum circles, creating positive energy, building things, hiking, educating, learning, and being challenged!
I am 23 years old and grew up in San Antonio, TX. I love Vegan food and Tex-mex. Nothing beats a spicy sweet potato enchilada. I applied for the Farm Apprenticship so I could spend time outside, working with my intuition and my hands in a beautiful community.
