Before I signed up for NY2NO, I never would have thought of myself as a farmer. And even though two weeks of living in hard conditions and compost did make me feel like a real farmer, I learned way more from NY2NO than how to transplant sprouts and harvest arugula. OSBG taught me that there is always something that can be done and that needs to be done. On the farm, that means if the dishes are dirty – clean them, if the floor needs sweeping – sweep it. In the real world, it means be aware of your surroundings and don’t be afraid to take on a difficult task. Don’t ever sit around and think “there’s nothing I can do,” because every single person can make a difference. I cannot thank OSBG and NY2NO enough, because they have changed me. This past summer I gained a sense of awareness and responsibility, and I also had more fun jammed into two weeks than I’ve ever had. I know that even if we don’t talk every day, the other NY2NOers will always be there for me – and that’s the best feeling I could ask for.
