"The village visit was the most memorable part of the journey. I got to know so much about the community! And realised living in the city we have so many stereotypes and incorrect beliefs. I enjoyed the community cooking session, when we all made puris!"

"We understood how the local community engages in farming, and how protecting the forest, the land - is not an option for them, it's their whole life. We take green spaces in the city for granted ! I want to continue learning about farmers and farmer's rights when i go back to the city."
