Providing a year-round supply of organic fruits and vegetables for over 1,000 Maharishi Vedic Pandits from India—residing in Iowa, in the US—is just one of Dr Robert Wynne's responsibilities as Mayor of Maharishi Vedic City.
The Vedic Pandits are peace-creating experts, utilizing the technologies of Maharishi's Vedic Science to create coherence and harmony for the United States. They form the foundation of the Invincible America Assembly.*
Dr Wynne, a Raja (Administrator) of the Global Country of World Peace, heads up a group called Maharishi World Peace Vedic Organics. Their mission is to import fresh organic produce to serve the Pandits, and provide produce for the general public, generating profit to support the Vedic Pandits in the US and in India at the Global Capital of World Peace.
After numerous exploratory visits to tropical countries near the United States to find organic farmers, they have begun importing about 5,000 pounds (2.26 metric tons) of fresh fruits and vegetables. Through the process, they have organized a distribution system, making it possible for even remote farmers to make a steady income supplying produce to Maharishi World Peace Vedic Organics.
During their visits, the group regularly advises farmers and farmers' groups on how to grow organically, and offers solutions to many types of plant disease and insect pests. Government agriculture leaders are now inviting Maharishi World Peace Vedic Organics to help train farmers in those countries to convert from conventional farming to organic and sustainable agriculture.
Dean Goodale, a member of the group, was invited to one Latin American country to talk about his area of expertise: organic greenhouse production.** His presentation to farmers and officials, including representatives from Brazil, Spain, Italy, Holland, and Canada, was very well received.
Raja Wynne explained that many farmers in these countries are interested in converting to organic, as some farmers have died as a result of using pesticides. 'They all want to go organic, it's just that they were never told it was possible.'
