Inner Peas

Jul 24, 2020

For the past 6 weeks, I've been employing 8th graders for a few hours on Fridays.

It gives me a crew to help with weeding, harvesting, and other special farm projects.

It's also helping me refine my leadership style for this particular audience of 13 year olds. 

I see it as an opportunity to plant seeds.

Seeds of what it means to have a job, to be a hard worker, to advocate for yourself, and to hone in on what makes you feel intrinsically motivated (beyond hanging with your friends).

I usually allow for one perfectly sarcastic complaint at the end of our shifts for everyone to have a good laugh, but today we ended with a gratitude circle.

Gratitude for nature, our friends, the ability to work on a far, the ability to see our progress throughout the morning.

One of my highlights today was watching two boys harvesting peas.

One of them said...

"you have to look within to find inner peas."


Happy Friday,
