Hasyapriya Prabhu has many plans for the tractor
in service at the Soquel Seva Ashram. He gives a description
of some of the first projects it will be used for:
"We have two projects that the County
is requiring us to complete. One is the installation of a
fire hydrant in the parking lot with an additional water storage
tank. The second is the re-building of the two bridges at
both ends of our driveway where the driveway connects with
Rodeo Gulch Road. These bridges must be certified to carry
the weight of the heavy fire trucks. Both of these projects
require extensive tractor and backhoe work. Now we will not
need to rent that equipment, since we will have our own. Next
Spring, Bahulavan Prabhu will come to help us with those projects
and he will also train our devotees (including young Nilamani
Prabhu!) on how to use the equipment.
"As money and time permit and with the
permission of the County where required, there are many other
projects both small and large where we can utilise this equipment
in the service of the Soquel Seva Ashram."
The tractor is being shipped to Soquel by sea
container and will arrive in January 2006.
