The 1 acre land which belongs to flood department of the government is currently being maintained by ISKCON Punjabi Bagh for facilitating and serving temple visitors. The waste land was transformed into a garden by devotees. Flower and fruits plants were planted for serving the deities. A big tulasi garden has also been developed in one section of the area.
A compost machine has also been installed earlier which converts all waste from deity department like flowers, garlands, etc into compost thus addressing waste management in an eco-friendly manner. A gym by MCD for the good health of neighborhood is planned in near future along with yagyashala and kutir for spiritual classes.
