Please describe yourself so that other like minded devotees can find you.
I currently work as a landscaper/hardscaper/farmer outside of Philadelphia. They just got a baby calf on the farm that had been born premature so I have been relishing the opportunity to serve her needs and look after her. I have struggled to find my role in society but am hopeful to get more involved in cow protection.
What are your expectations from this community?
The opportunity to hear Krsna-katha from the devotees.
Describe any specific service you would love to offer to Lord Krishna & His devotees?
I am hopeful to get involved more directly with cow protection in the coming years.
