Favorite Thing About BK: How welcoming it is - I came in as a freshman and didn’t know anything about plants or green living really, but everyone was so welcoming and encouraging. I have learned so much and BK has become a huge part of my life - I’m a dedicated plant mom and I love sharing what I’ve learned with others.

Favorite Thing About BK: I love getting the chance to get outside and get my hands dirty all while hanging out with some really cool people! It's also just really fulfilling to grow your own food and witness firsthand every part of that process. Oh, and potlucks and farmers markets and community engagement are also super great and fun.

Favorite Thing About BK: I love the joy that comes across people's faces at the end of a workday or harvest when they can look at all the work they've done and say "I did that" and how empowering the feeling of having literal, tangible fruits of your labor.
