Elective Rotation: Food, Nutrition, and Medicine

Location: Galicia, Spain
I worked on an organic farm through WOOF (world wide organization of organic farms) in Galicia, Spain for a month with Miguel and his family (3 young kids and wife). It was wonderful and a great experience to get your hands in the dirt and taste what fresh veggies really taste like, to learn about honey and the bees, see farm animals live and die, the symbiotic relationship of animal, human, and food, and to not think much about medicine (pills, that is). I searched through the WOOF website (you have to pay $40 for each country you search, and they have farms all over the world that are solely organic and all about sustainability). Definitely recommend it.
