"If you were given a choice to grow your food than buying it at the local supermarket, what would you do?"
I poised this question to Scott Crook, a student at the Capilano University Agricultural program.
" I would grow my own food. Its cheaper, fresh, healthier for the environment and I get to work at my own pace at the farm."
Organic farming and learning to manage agricultural farms has become increasingly popular among both male and female students in BC,
"If you love nature this is the right place to be. I would love to own a vineyard some day and make my own wine" Crook said.
Scott Crook is on a fast track to becoming an organic farmer. " There are days when it rains constantly. Then it is my job to protect the plants from getting water logged."
"Do you still want to keep on doing this?" I asked.
"Absolutely", said Crook with a big smile on his face.
I put Scott on the spot and asked him how he would describe himself in three words- fun, exciting and focused.
