Please click on the following link to read more about Permaculture students plant 'edible forest'. The article features students in the Permaculture and Design course at Maharishi University of Management (MUM) in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, who crafted an edible food forest on campus to be a display of self-sustainability* based on contemporary permaculture principles—the design of productive habitats for people that have the stability, diversity, and resilience of natural ecosystems.

Designed to integrate sustainable education, food production, and community involvement in a natural setting, the forest is an ever-evolving work in progress, said student Ashley Smith, president of the Sustainable Council student group.

* For more about MUM's substantial academic degree offerings in sustainability, please see BS in Sustainable Living and MBA in Sustainable Business.

All of the university's academic programmes feature holistic development of sustainability within the students themselves, integrating Consciousness-Based Education and daily practice of the Transcendental Meditation Programme.
