China Anhui Farm Project

In 2011 I helped some farmers in a poor village near Hefei, Anhui, setup their organic farm and improve the yield, in exchange for Chinese and cooking lessons. It was a physically demanding job. We would wake up at 5AM in near 0 deg C weather and work till 5pm in the evening. With no internet, no mobile phone signal and just the village and its simple people, I had a soul cleansing stint there.
