Radically improving the soil in area pastures and hay fields is the goal of Greener Pastures, a senior project of Sustainable Living student Jacob Krieger at Maharishi University of Management in Iowa, USA. The project is part of the consulting arm of Abundant Biology, a company founded by Mr. Krieger to bring health, diversity, and biological abundance to farmland ecosystems.

He explains that techniques of restorative agriculture allow the soil to retain its natural fertility so that tillage and chemicals aren't necessary. Greener Pastures hopes to treat up to 2,000 acres of local pasture and hay fields by December of 2014 to demonstrate the effectiveness of this approach.

''I love Fairfield and MUM, and my goal is to make an impact locally as a way of thanking the community for being such a good influence on my life,'' Mr. Krieger said.

Global Good News comment:

* Among many special features of the MUM Sustainable Living program is its focus on developing inner sustainability, described in the department's web page: ''We believe that developing sustainable businesses, societies, and communities is dependent upon those entities being comprised of highly developed individuals. . . . Sustainability is about creating a thriving world in which we lead rich, productive, and fulfilling lives—without depleting the environment or ourselves. To meet our responsibility to current and future generations, we must connect with our own inner nature. MUM's Consciousness-Based education and Transcendental Meditation technique expand your awareness and help you realign to act in harmony with nature.''
