Continuing his presentation on 22 October Maharishi Global Family Chat, Dr Peter Swan, Minister of Communication for the Global Country of World Peace and host of the daily programme, unfolded more details about the new course on Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture, recently held for the first time in South Africa.

Dr Swan showed slides of the 27 participants in the course, which was held at the Houghton Invincibility Centre in Johannesburg. 'There is a great interest in sustainable agriculture and organic gardening, so it was a great joy for everyone to dive deep into the knowledge,' said Dr Swan.

The curriculum draws on the profound principles of Maharishi Vedic Science to provide a framework for the knowledge of organic agriculture and soil sciences.

Continuing his outline of the course, Dr Swan said that the fourth lesson is Soil Science, Part II: 'From Limited to Unlimited'. Lesson five is about organic gardening: 'From outer looks to inner nutrient value', which goes deeply into a whole range of organic gardening techniques.

Lesson six investigates 'Techniques of organic agriculture: from sub-soil to humus'. 'There are now proven, less expensive techniques that improve the quality of the soil being farmed, so that it is no longer necessary to degrade the soil, the heritage of future generations,' Dr Swan explained.

Lesson seven presents 'Principles of organic agriculture, Part I: From quantity to quantity plus quality.'

Global Good News will feature another article on the principles of Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture presented in this course, in the coming days.
