In June 2023, 15 SSSIO volunteers, including children, enthusiastically planted 20 Spek boom plants at a Goshala (cow shed) in Seatides, South Africa. They fed the cows fresh fruit and vegetables, installed a 5000-liter water storage tank, and filled five existing water tanks. Volunteers also took this opportunity to sing devotional songs and listen to a discourse by Swami on the Bhagavad Gita during a nature walk.
