For one month and a half, this summer, I went to Albertshofen, a small village in the middle of Germany, Franconia, to work in an organic horticulture farm.
When I was a kid, my mom never really had a taste for the outdoors. We grew up just outside of Paris. If you’ve ever been to Paris, you’ll know that it is not a place full of farms or huge fields or much green. We did have a garden at home, but with nothing much in it.
Coming from a big city (Paris, capital de la mode), I didn’t grow up with a taste of what living in the country side might be like, or smell like. Except this one day in primary school where they took us for a special day out in a farm (I remember that, for some of us, it was the first time seeing real cows, not on TV. How exciting !) There were cows, chickens, pigs, salads, plants, fruits ! And most of us had never smell something like that before.
