Looking for sincere, loyal, forward-thinking devotees of Srila Prabhupada to
help us use our 200 acres of prime farmland for spreading the Hare Krishna
movement in Guyana.
" 200 acres
" Modern, adequate facility concrete block house suitable for a

At the moment 53 acres are fully developed. 43 acres are rice fields and
currently being rented out to nondevotee farmers (we would make this land
