Amelia Farm Day 5

One week down, three to go!

Curry, burgers and sauce with a field of rice – was what they cooked today in their ‘life skills class’ yummy.

After a week on the farm I am getting a sense of alienation from the different groups working there. It is by no means one group working together. The pottery / pastoral chat corner, teaching and activities all seem disparate parts and as yet I do not see them as a whole. There is a whole lot of really good work being done on the farm and those kids who are lucky enough to be part of it really do benefit, but I sense different directions.

Perhaps this is healthy especially working with people who don’t even know what they want!

It is like a church, everyone doing their part, but none seeing the whole picture.
