Some Experiences of a Field Fellow

Visiting a Post-Landslide Community As some of you may know, between August 16 and August 30,   Kerala was hit with the worst flood the area has seen in over a hundred years. What is very unfortunate about the whole thing is that some of it was not preventable and some of it was. See, 5 meters of rain fell in just about 10 days here in Wayanad where I am. That’s over 16 feet of […]

Adventures of a Field Fellow

October 24, 2017 Today officially marks the end of my first week in Prashanthagiri, and I’m just getting my feet wet in my role as Field Fellow — both metaphorically and literally. This morning I accompanied Gilgy on a partial field visit, stopping in at 11 of the 30 participating homes to check in on the progress of their provided seedlings and other produce plants for the Organic Kitchen Garden (OKG) initiative. The field visit […]
