I came to India for the first time hoping to find out about and experience ordinary family and community life. I never expected it to be such a rich and fulfilling time.

Being so far from home on my own for the first time could have been lonely but from my arrival I was immediately made to feel relaxed and looked after. Not once have I felt home sick as Jeevan and his beautiful family have welcomed me into the heart of their home.

On my first day in Kanda we went to Bageshwar to a festival, it was bustling with people, markets and a funfair, singing and dancing and a wonderful air of excitement. We visited with family and friends, I could not stop smiling and felt so lucky to be involved. Since that first day there have been too many wonderful things happen to talk about them all but I will mention leopard spotting, learning to make bricks, making chappatis and an amazing first day of spring.

Jeevan has allowed me to be involved in all aspects of family life and has shown great patience in explaining how the project at ROSE works. It is truly inspirational to see a community so motivated in improving the world around them and helping each other.

I would urge anyone who is interested in learning about organic farming or sustainability, or who wishes to be a part of family life to visit here. Or even bring a skill that you might think could be useful. Your time here will be in your heart forever.

It would be impossible for me to write down all their kindnesses but I thank them for everything they have done for me. I will miss you all.
