Update: Our New Building


We’re finished renovating the smaller of our two buildings – it was the easiest one, and also the most urgent to move into because the web department needed the much-better internet connection offered at the site. The space also is home to several of our local Bhaktivedanta Book Trust staff.

In the space we had to completely redo some very unsafe wiring and upgrade the plumbing (energy conserving water heater, new fixtures, etc.). We have refinished the wood floors rather than replace them, and they look so beautiful! Several of the smaller offices were repainted. And we replaced all 11 windows and the air conditioners to be much more energy efficient.

We’re looking at the main building now, and getting quotes to deal with some of the initial projects that need to be done. For example, before the property was handed over to us, the power was out for two weeks. In Florida, in the summer, this means MOLD! We have it under control but all of the carpet needs to be pulled out and the walls and ceilings need to be sealed and repainted. The air conditioning duct work needs to be cleaned as well.

But then we can start the many small projects needed to turn this old daycare into offices for the rest of the and Back to Godhead magazine team. We made it this far on generous donations from supporters, and we’ll be able to finish off this big project with your continued support.

If you would like to send funds specifically for the new office, please note that it is for the ‘New Building Fund’ so it goes to the right destination. For more info on the new building:
