This has been one of the greatest experiences in my life. Before Howdy Farm, I had taken some Horticulture classes, but it was never applied until I became very involved in Howdy Farm. There is a huge difference between learning in the classroom, and learning it hands on. I am glad that my roles in this internship was well rounded and not focused on one specific thing. I say this, because I was able to learn about each little task or assignment. Being an Intern at Howdy Farm provides you with knowledge in transplanting, planting, growing, maintaining, communicating, and assisting in running a small scale garden and farm. If I had a chance to do this again, I would go right back and do it.
I would like to give a shout out to Corey because he is the best farm manager in the world. He has the kindest heart and is always eager to teach you. I would like to also recognize Ms. Kitty, whom I fell in love with. She is our farm cat; no one knows where she came from, but she has made a home at the farm. Ms. Kitty is very picky on who can pet her, but when it comes to food she is always meowing for more. If you try to say something to her, she can hold a conversation with you; she is quite a talker.
I hope Howdy Farm grows as a farm and as an organization. I hope more and more people realize the importance that it plays in our community. Howdy Farm gives off an ambiance that encourages growth and involvement. To whomever wants to become an Intern at Howdy Farm, I would 110% recommend it.
Goodbye For Now.......
