The farm has a way of putting the body to work through a meditation of constant controlled labor. Learning is of course abundant. Everywhere your head turns teaches you if you look close enough. Everything, even something as easy as farming needs the work given to it in order to understand the complex balance.
My hands are in soil often throughout the day, the earth is soft and feels like sand between my fingers. At times it feels as though the earth work specific labor connects us in an almost tribal way.
The people here are the most unique cogs in a wheel you can imagine. Their positive group mindset towards a shared goal is admirable. There is not much room for anything other than production on a farm. You have your down time. But you work a full hard day, and you finish whatever project you start until completion, even if it takes you into the evening.
