Revee Needham ’18: WWOOF-ing It in Costa Rica

By Peter Tschirhart on March 5, 2017

Revee Needham learned about organic farming in Costa Rica.

During winter of 2017, Alumni Memorial Scholar Revee Needham ’18 used her grant funds to learn about organic farming in Costa Rica. She writes:

I worked on the farm most mornings, helping to plant, harvest crops, and befriend the baby goat. I learned about the challenges of organic farming in Costa Rica, where pesticide use is higher than the U.S. Overall, the work was a lot more time and labor-intensive than I would’ve thought. Also, I learned about the devastation of November’s hurricane on the farm’s crops.
