As part of this year’s annual Seva Day, volunteers from the Manor community picked litter and removed fly-tipping from Composers Park in Elstree.
Meanwhile, 150 volunteers of all ages helped in the harvesting of over 6 tonnes of potatoes from one of Bhaktivedanta Manor’s fields designated for horticulture.
Another Seva Day contribution included a team of devotees who work for Ernst and Young, Network Rail and Barclays Capital, who cooked vegetarian meals for the homeless in Watford’s YMCA.
“On Seva Day, thousands of good-hearted people across the world come together to perform voluntary Seva (service) to the community and experience the joy of giving in its truest sense,” explained Seva Day Chairman Anup Ganguly during their recent conference held at Bhaktivedanta Manor. “This year people from 70 countries will take part in Seva Day to one degree or another, including Indonesia and China”.
