Great High School Experience
By: Daniel Brickley (Nov 17, 2008)
I was in high school when my family was a member of this farm, and 3RF really inspired me. Working on the farm with my family was peaceful and relaxing, not boring like I thought it might be at first. Also, Robin and Greg were always so nice and helpful. Greg always took the time to explain why were were doing what we were doing. This grabbed my attention so much that I decided to take AP Environmental Science in my senior year of high school. When I convinced my teacher to take us on a field trip to the farm, Robin and Greg were again generous, with both time and knowledge.
I am now an environmental studies and biology major at my university, and I was able to go on a research trip to Mongolia with the biology department. Having experience at the farm was a big reason for my major and my acceptance to the Mongolia program. I am also planning to work on an organic farm through the WWOOF network while I am studying abroad in Germany. When I go home for the summer, my family now attends a different farm, and I really miss the time we spent at 3RF.
