Wild Minds Week 4 – Visited the The Sharing Farm in Richmond, which is mostly volunteer run and grows food to support the local foodbank. Was such a beautiful reprise from the busyness of the city and to get out into nature. Had to take the skytrain into Richmond and bus to No 1 Road and Westminster Highway, then 10 minute walk to the farm. Saw an amazingly productive greenhouse and helped weed the carrots. Was so much fun, the kids actually wished they could stay longer. Thing is, the experience of working on a real farm is something the kids have never done before (let along most of us city dwellers) and they really enjoyed the meditative nature of weeding.
