        Being the very first to be sent by Village Volunteers I have had the opportunity to help, very directly, in the growth of Mountain View Eco Farm. This opportunity I am grateful to have had. Spending the last three months here has been unforgettable and, I feel, a factor in shaping the adult I am becoming. My time here turned into something more than just being a volunteer and giving my time to a start up eco farm in Nepal. It changed into something much more valuable and something I will always treasure. My time here morphed into getting to know Nepal from the inside out, spending all my time surrounded by what makes this country outstanding and great: its people! I didn’t expect that I would be living solo with a family but I am so happy that that’s what it turned out to be. I wouldn’t have it any other way. Govinda is a fantastic person, clear thinking, quietly determined, compassionate, and passionate about what he is doing and how to do it. This is what really matters in someone who looks to lead the community. It was easy living with him too. I was always given the perfect amount of respect and personal space while always feeling that we were equals.  Never did I ever feel like an outsider. I felt very welcomed and accepted as part of the temporary family, and for me spending three months here, a part of the permanent family. Ama never fails to make you laugh. The house is full of joy and beautiful, the food is to die for, and, of course, the views are outstanding. If anyone was on the fence about coming here stop that and catch the next flight! I will say that this is not the usual eco farm and that’s what makes MVEF special. You’re living with a Nepali family and helping transplant squash under the bamboo trellis you help cut and build. There isn’t time enough in the world for me to say all the things I want to only that I wish I hadn’t stayed for such a short time! I endorse MVEF 100% along with Govinda and everything he’s doing and planning to do. Come to Mountain View Eco Farm, you won’t regret it.
