During his visit in October 1975, Srila Prabhupada approved the idea of acquiring some land for the establishment of a Krishna conscious community. Soon after this meeting a committee was set up with interested lifemembers. Funds were raised to start the first basic construction. It was now mid 1982. Two rooms were covered with iron sheets and the devotees started to live on the land in very simple conditions. In 1983 the first cow was donated. December 1984 one of the first biogas plants in Mauritius was inaugurated and thousands of people from all over came to visit the project. The name and fame of ISKCON VEDIC FARM spread quickly through the island.
