Farmer 2 Farmer: Lessons From a Week Volunteering on a Patagonian Farm

Posted by Heather Shobe on February 28, 2019

“¡Tú lo sabes!” Says Aunt Rosita (You know it!). “So tidy, so good. You are a farmer!” It’s February of 20017, and I’m on a South American odyssey that includes one week volunteering on a traditional farm in Patagonia. I speak very little Spanish, and what I do know is very different than the Argentinian dialect that surrounds me. My host family speaks little English, and we’re getting by on a series of hand signals, facial expressions, and a translation app I’ve downloaded to my Ipad. As a small farm operator, I’ve hosted a number of farm-stay helpers in the past, … Continue reading Farmer 2 Farmer: Lessons From a Week Volunteering on a Patagonian Farm

Angelo Modolo working with leafcutter bees at Nature's Way Farm, Grimshaw Alberta

First of all, I have to thank Young Agrarians for asking me to share my story. I truly believe in what they are doing and if the world is still a nice place to live, then it is because there are people like them. My journey in Canada, and precisely in the Peace Country started on March 4th, 2017. After I became an agronomist I felt empty, without any goals, and everything around me looked too complicated and overwhelming to find my way. At that point I thought, “Ok Angelo, it’s time to take the risk and see how others … Continue reading YA Apprenticeship: Reflections from Nature’s Way Farm, Grimshaw AB
