On 19 April 2005 The Associated Press reported: Maharishi Vedic City continues to receive state and regional coverage for becoming the first all-organic city in the country. The original article from The Associated Press, printed in the Marshalltown Times Republican, on the ground-breaking decision has reappeared on KCCI 8 Iowa, WOI-TV Des Moines, KWQC-TV, Iowa, WQAD-TV, Illinois, and WHO-TV, Iowa. It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of environment.

The articles noted that the Maharishi Vedic City city council has voted to ban the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers within the city. The ban follows earlier action to grow and sell only organic foods within the city limits.

Kathleen Delate (Dell-it) is an associate professor with Iowa State University's Department of Horticulture and Agronomy told The Associated Press that the Southeast Iowa town could likely be the first city in the country to go all organic.

She said that while other cities have organic components in the maintenance of parks and golf courses, as far as a city-wide organic policy, Maharishi Vedic City could be the first.

City Attorney Maureen Wynne said residents in the city already use all-organic methods so the council's vote only formalized a practice that was already in place.
