In a few short months, Kylie Anderson went from graduating high school in Quincy to harvesting 20lbs of organic limes on Kolea Farm in Oahu, Hawaii. (pictured)

She decided to wait a year before attending college after graduating from Plumas Charter School in 2021. She spent part of her gap year working on an organic farm in Hawaii with the Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms (WWOOF) organization.

WWOOF is a worldwide movement to link visitors with organic farmers, promote a cultural and education exchange and build a global community conscious of ecological farming and sustainability practices. They link people to host farms around the world with 1,494 of them in the US. For more information visit their website

Kylie is home now and finishing her checklist to attend Cal Poly: Humboldt in the fall. She plans to explore Environmental Studies. “I want to turn my career into my hobby as well. Meaning, it is something that I absolutely love to do,” said Anderson. 

Her hobbies include playing in nature, mountain biking and making different types of art. Kylie’s love for the outdoors started at a young age. She remembers taking camping trips as a PCS elementary student, visiting national and state parks. “We would hike and swim and because the group was usually small, we were all good friends,” she said. 

Kylie said the structure of the charter school helped prepare her for life as a young adult. She also credits her 9th-11th grade English teacher, Johnny Stafford as an influential instructor during her time at PCS. 

Enjoy the outdoors, Kylie!
