Walking tour of MUM's Sustainable Living Center and

Fairfield, IA, USA, August 2, 2011—After weeks traveling the state of Iowa, USA, to talk to premier sustainability experts, solar-powered radio station KRUU-FM's ''Dream Green'' series takes a walking tour of the Sustainable Living Center at Maharishi University of Management (MUM) and conducts faculty interviews with Lonnie Gamble and Travis Cox, to air Thursday, August 4 at 7 p.m. (US CT).

''Dream Green'' co-hosts Stuart Tanner and James Moore will explore the university's nearly complete, off-the-grid education facility, which features edible landscaping and whole trees as beams. The Associated Press described the center as ''the ultimate green building'' in an article carried by Forbes, BusinessWeek, MSNBC, and other national media.

''Right here in Fairfield, Iowa, sustainable living practices are being applied that will eventually be applied throughout the globe,'' said Stuart Tanner. ''The new Sustainable Living Center is a building like no other and seeks to create a self-sufficiency and overall balance with the environment that will astound listeners in its depth and breadth of achievement.'' MUM's sustainability program offers both graduate and post-graduate degrees.

Tanner and Moore interview professors Gamble and Cox, as well as two students. Lonnie Gamble is a founding faculty member of the MUM Sustainable Living Department and has been teaching, developing sustainability curriculum, and mentoring students since 1996. He has not paid an electricity bill for over 15 years and has founded a number of for-profit and non-profit sustainability ventures, including Abundance Ecovillage and the Sustainable Living Coalition. Travis Cox is working on his PhD through Iowa State University. He has spent years researching the intersection of social movements, education, metaphysics, environmental philosophy, and agriculture.

''Lonnie Gamble is well-known around the state for his passionate commitment to sustainability and his deep knowledge and first-hand experience of the subject,'' said James Moore.

Stuart Tanner is an award-winning documentary filmmaker whose work has appeared on BBC, Channel 4, and National Geographic. He teaches in the Media and Communications Department at Maharishi University of Management. James Moore is co-founder and executive director of KRUU since its inception in 2006. He serves on adjunct faculty at MUM where he teaches Radio and Web Broadcasting.
