I very much enjoyed my time at Neshobe Farm. My favorite part was learning about primitive man skills. Learning about making rope from plants to make cordage? Another thing I enjoyed learning about was pests and how some plants have built in defense mechanisms to protect themselves.

Another cool thing we learned was how to make cordage rope from dried up milkweed which could come in handy if at some point you are in the woods and need to quickly fashion some sort of rope to tie something down with.
