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
Thank you so much for the invaluable service you have provided in making all this nectar available in one stop listening format; the world's consciousness awareness of such facility may be lifetimes in appreciating its true worth, but hearing Srila Prabhupada's timeless wisdom presented from so many modern day sadhus cannot have an affixed value, and is, hence, indeed, "Matchless Gifts"
I donate to IDT because it has consistently helped me stay closely connected to Shri Guru and Vaishnavas by hearing (shravanam). I live in the US and the nearest ISKCON temple is over 3 hours away. But I download lectures on my iPod and listen to the lectures regularly to maintain a spiritual consciousness. New lectures are available on IDT pretty quickly too.
