Please describe yourself so that other like minded devotees can find you.
I am a retired dairy farmer. I now live in Flint, Michigan and devote my time to vegetable gardening. I have a large vegetable garden in Flint and offer all produce to The Divine couple in our garden temple and then distibute it along with Prabhupadas books in a vegetable stand outside the garden. For the past two years I have grown and maintained a large vegetable garden at the Detoit Iskcon Temple for RadhaKunjabihari and the devotees. I have pledged to the temple president and to Srila Prabhupada to distribute 1000 books in the next year from this past Vyasa Puja to next years Vyasa Puja. For the past seven years I have distributed roughly 300 books a year through my vegetable stand and mailings to friends and family during the Christmas holiday season.
What are your expectations from this community?
I hope to gain association and knowledge
Describe any specific service you would love to offer to Lord Krishna & His devotees?
I only hope to continue to distribute more books in more locations in the years to come and to attract more people to Krishna. Also to continue my serve to the devotees with the vegetable gardens I have established with Krishna mercy.

Wish you a very happy KC b'day, May lord Sri Krsna & Smt. Radha Rani blessed you always. & we pray to supreme personality of
godhead (Krsna) that this is our last
birth in this material world & we never take birth again in this material
I donate money to the ISKCON Desire Tree because I want to do something useful, yet I do not have time (and sadly desire) to find different type of service. Years ago I was a very active member of the ISKCON, now I hardly ever visit a temple, although still think of Krishna and Vaishnavas, and hope to be "lifted" once again one day. So, something is better than nothing.
Thank you very much for your sincere service and optimism.
