This is my blog about my adventures, insights, and life as an intern organic farmer on the Big Island of Hawaii.
What am I doing?
I am growing lettuce. Yep. That’s about it. You would be amazed at how complex lettuce can be. We take our lettuce go from seed to package. The whole process takes about two or three months. We then sell that lettuce to local restaurants and grocery stores.
Why am I doing it?
For a more thorough answer, see my first blog post. The short answer is I have always had a desire to learn how to farm. I am going into horticultural therapy and realized if I am going to be a horticultural therapist, I better know a thing or two about horticulture.
How long am I doing it?
I got here mid-September 2017. I plan to stay in Hawaii until maybe the holidays. I may or may not spend that entire time on this farm. We’ll just have to see what life brings me.
