A Brave New World: Living Farm Internship

It is perhaps one of the most rare occasions when one can go to bed blissfully content and rise the next morning in the same state. We live in a society that is so rich with opportunity; so blessed with abundant diversity and technology that it seems our individual consciousness’s have become anxiously perplexed. Here me now, I am not one to advocate for digressing back to a more simple way of life. There are indeed many things that our species has polluted in our race to develop (no denying our planet is in a state of crisis). However we have also tapped into an incredible amount of knowledge that would be a shame to dismiss for simplicity’s sake. So then the question becomes, how do we progress towards a more peaceful state; towards a life where collectively we can all lie down to sleep and rise in the morning thoroughly satisfied?
