On 25 January 2006 KTVO-TV3 reported:
The 15,000 square foot organic greenhouse in Maharishi Vedic City, Iowa, USA, produces an abundance of certified organic produce that is purchased by restaurants and stores as far away as Chicago.
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.
At peak times of the year, greenhouse production reaches between two to four tons of produce. Much of it is consumed locally, but some also fills the demand for organic produce in the big cities.
Presently, much of the greenhouse is occupied by rows of lettuce, but in February tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers will be added to the plantings.
Farm Manager Dean Goodal said that studies have shown that organic foods are richer in nutrients than their conventionally grown counterparts. The article explains that this is because 'not using chemicals allows more minerals and sugars into the plant'.
Goodal believes that people who buy produce from the greenhouse not only appreciate the high quality of organic food, but also find that the food from the Maharishi Vedic City greenhouse tastes better.
The greenhouse focuses on energy efficiency as well as the production of highly nutritious, chemical-free food. The article reported that: 'The greenhouse has received several grants from the USDA including two energy efficiency grants for wind turbines and solar panels.'
KTVO-TV3 featured Maharishi Vedic City's greenhouse on their website in a written article and also included a video link.
Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total
Knowledge based—programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
