Since we last wrote, we have managed to plant another 800 broccoli and cauliflower per week, bringing the total planted so far to around 2,500 all together. Manigriva Prabhu brought a new planting machine, which sits on the back of the tractor, and allows us to plant 800 seedlings in just over half an hour.
On Sunday, we attended the Inner Peace Festival which is held once a year in Geelong. The festival attracts people who are interested in alternative spirituality. Present at the festival were stalls promoting yoga, healing, meditation, etc. The devotees from Hare Krishna Valley also had a book table promoting our philosophy, and simultaneously we were the main caterers at the event. One lady approached us and said she had been waiting the whole year to taste our apple crumble! Overall, it was a successful day in sharing Krishna Conciousness with the people of Geelong.
We look forward to keeping you updated with the progress at Hare Krishna Valley.
Until then, I remain yours in the service of Srila Prabhupada.
