Kayla Miner, a sophomore animal science major at University of Maryland, College Park, sits on a stack of hay at the campus farm on March 27, 2012. Miner has been volunteering at the farm for the past two years.
Miner spends anywhere from five to 15 hours a week at the campus farm, but she never gets bored. She loves spending time with the animals, but she also enjoys manual labor. “I spend so much time doing mental work that it's nice to get physically exhausted instead of mentally exhausted once in a while,” Miner said.
Miner takes a break and lies on a couch at the campus farm after a few hours of hard work. After stacking hay and straw, feeding animals, building chicken coops and taking care of baby lambs Miner likes to relax in the social room at the farm.
