Twenty six devotees from the Province of Ontario and Quebec came together (and one of them all the way from Vancouver in British Columbia) on Saturday, December 17 at the King Edward Park Community Center in Brighton Ontario to participate in the first Central Canada Farm Conference. The theme for the conference was “Developing Self Sustaining Communities”. Both His Holiness Bhaktimarga Swami (GBC for Canada) and His Holiness Bhakti Raghava Swami Minister for the ISKCON Daiva Varnasrama Ministry in India) graced the occasion. The event proved very successful with devotees sharing their respective projects, concerns and vision about Srila Prabhupada’s vision of establishing Sustainable Vaisnava Communities. Although not able to attend the conference His Grace Kalakantha prabhu, Minister for the ISKCON Cow Protection and Agriculture Ministry as well as Chairman for the Sustainable Vaisnava Communities (earlier known as Global Varnasrama Initiative Committee) sent a written message congratulating the devotees for holding the conference and encouraging more such events. More detailed information will be shared in the days to come.
