At the end of each day, there were slight pangs of guilt in my chest; I had spent my day at the farm helping the staff, but I felt like they were helping me to grow as a leader and an individual just as much- if not more- than I was able to help them. Like the small seeds that ended up blooming in the compost pile, I feel as though our team was able to bloom in an unlikely place this spring break thanks to ASB “sowing” us in the garden of Petaluma Bounty.
