A course in Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture and Gardening was recently held in Skelmersdale, England. The four-day, 16-lesson course was enjoyed by 23 participants from England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales.

Dr Peter Swan, Minister of Communication of the Global Country of World Peace and Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture expert, conducted the course in the beautiful 'Golden Dome' which is at the heart of a community of about 300 Yogic Flyers and practitioners of the Transcendental Meditation Programme in Skelmersdale.

'The course offers an in-depth overview of Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture and Gardening,' Dr Swan said.* 'It offered a deep dive into Total Knowledge, which was so much appreciated by the great knowers of reality of that enlightened community.'

Dr Swan highlighted the knowledge presented in each lesson of the course:

'The first lesson gives an overview of the course—so it gives the whole course in brief,' he said.

The second lesson, entitled Transformation of modern agriculture from ploughing to no-till introduces a major theme of the course: do less and accomplish more, Dr Swan said.

This lesson shows the shift that is taking place in the world from extensive ploughing—which causes a huge amount of damage to the soil and the environment—to no-till agriculture, which doesn't involve turning over the soil.

The third lesson covers the transformation of soil science from chemical to biological. 'Over the past 70 years or so,' Dr Swan continued, 'the major emphasis has been on adding chemicals to the soil for fertility.'

The use of chemicals has caused extensive damage, he said. It actually weakens the crop as well as people's health.

Now there is a new understanding 'that the biology [bacteria, fungi, earthworms, etc.] is what is responsible for creating not only the soil structure, but also the soil fertility.'

In the coming days Global Good News will feature the continuation of Dr Swan's talk, including his discussion of 'the transformation of soil fertility from limited to unlimited'; and his discussion of these various topics in light of Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture.

* Dr Swan's report was featured on the 11 March 2010 Maharishi Global Family Chat, broadcast daily via Internet webcast on the Maharishi Channel, Channel 3. Podcasts of the daily Global Family Chat (audio track) are also now available for automatic download, via an RSS feed.
