Every so often we update the latest comments from Wwoofers (World Wide Opportunities for Organic Farming) who have sojourned at the Krishna Temple. If you've read these posts before, best to start at the bottom, with Yelena and Dan, the most recent, and work your way backwards up the list. Though the irrigation lines are being rolled up and stored for the winter, and the freezers and storage areas are full of produce which has been frozen or canned, we are still getting a lot of applications from interested young people for the winter. Under the leadership of Randy Gordon, the Salt Lake Temple will be home to another big gardening project of 3/4 acres next spring.

The Krishna Temple is an incredible place in all kinds of aspects; the mountain views are breathtaking, the people are awesome, the work is unique and fun, and the exposure to Krishna consciousness quickly finds a sacred space in your heart. After spending five weeks at the Krishna Temple I am walking away with a new spiritual family, some life-long friends, useful life-skills, more aware, more knowledgeable, more confident in myself and my world, and with an endless store of memories I will look back on and cherish in this lifetime.
I can't say enough great things about the community. Caru, Vai, Hanuman, and Vraja are beautiful people who have so much to share, if you allow them to. No one will push their beliefs on you, but everyone is open to sharing if you ask. I would suggest attending the Sunday services as well as the daily yoga classes. There's dancing, singing, and a whole lot of fun! Also, I would suggest connecting with the other WWOOFers and exploring the surrounding area in your time off (hot springs are an awesome place to check out).
The Krishna community has proved to be a home away from home and I look forward to coming back time and time again. Thank you for everything! See you at Thanksgiving :-)
