Encouraging Wisdom of Farmers: Neil Patel  

Every week, we have a "Forest Call" to share insights and inspiration from various corners of the ServiceSpace ecosystem.  Typically, the call opens with a circle of sharing, then features a guest speaker and is followed by dynamic Q&A around the emergent themes.

Our guests this week will be:  Neil Patel!  â€‹People who have Computer Science degrees from UC Berkeley and Stanford don't always say, "When I graduate, I'm going to build technology to uplift rural farmers."  But that's precisely what Neil Patel did.  If you've been following his service journey or have read some his insightful blog entries, you'd almost  expect it.  Founder of Awaaz De, nominee of the prestigious Tech Museum Award, and ServiceSpace volunteer since his teen years, we are honored to have Neil share a bit about his journey, his projects, and insights around how technology affects the grassroots.
