Inspiring, challenging, activist, nature, and sustainable

I loved spending a weekend "WWOOFING" (Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms) on a garlic farm in northern New South Wales. With just one other good friend, we harvested garlic in the pouring rain, which was actually fantastic; learned more about biodynamic production methods; and met a fantastic middle aged couple that had true life lessons on sustainable lifestyles.

I chose this because I am passionate about issues of environmental sustainability and I liked SIT's experiential learning approach to study abroad where we focused more on workshops, field trips, and practical applications for our knowledge building. I liked the idea of a 5 week independent study project where we could pursue a relevant topic of our choice and really engage with the local culture.
