I've just finished my second week at the Farmacy. Whew! What can I say? I am astounded by the work that is being done on this land and how fast the season seems to be going already. It's hard to believe we will soon be packing up boxes for the CSM.
I've been doing my best over the past few years to grow as much of my own food as possible, eat local, and joined a CSA this winter. I've also learned to forage and have been incorporating wild foods into my diet regularly. Still, as I ate my very first sprig of asparagus straight out of the field last week (forget about ever buying it from the store again) and saw folks searching the tree line for nettles, it finally hit me. So THIS is what "farm fresh" tastes like and "wild crafted" looks like! I can't imagine anything better.
I feel lucky to have the opportunity to experience a place like this. To put myself into work that is meaningful and refreshing and that will serve others in ways I can only hope to one day fully grasp.
I'm breathing now and life's a little lighter.
Thanks, Lancaster Farmacy.
