When Joseph Campbell said follow you bliss, he was obviously already financially able to do so.
I'm Fred, another one of those fools living in one of the most expensive cities in the states. I've always had a figurative green thumb and have been around farming my whole life. As a kid I would fetch the occasional eggs for breakfast or weed my granny's tomato beds. Later I would find myself enrolling in every vocational training or internship that came my way. Even now at the ripe age of 22 in the most urban of settings I find a way to get my hands dirty in rich soil.
Ever since I first laid eyes on the magnificently stunning backgrounds of Xena: Warrior Princess, I knew where I belonged. With a climate as diverse as this city I yearn to go and grow everything under the sun. I am currently a WWOOF NZ member and have been eying a few farms that caught my attention. Imagine my surprise when a google search revealed to me just how much a three transfer flight to the opposite side of the world was.
