I only became interested in growing food about a year and a half ago, but my experience at First Light Farm has made me realize that it’s what I am meant to be doing. The farm has become my home away from home, a place where I feel at peace amidst the hustle and bustle of living in Seattle. Getting the chance to get my hands dirty and sit with the plants and the bugs and the birds is now something I crave. Before I began last summer, I thought my experience there would be a job just for the summer and Jane and Don would be my bosses. What I found was so much more. I found friends and a wonderful community that is here to stay! I am excited to be staying out there all summer long this time around.
