A British business executive who attended the recent 16-lesson course on Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture in MERU, Holland, commented on its timely significance in offering practical, profitable solutions to major problems in the next 40 years, stemming from: projected world population growth, corresponding rising demand for food, and the effects of estimated global climate change.
Dr Anthony Hardy is director of two companies in Great Britain, one of which is constructing Maharishi Garden Village, a Vastu community in Rendlesham, Suffolk, England which is designed according to principles of Vedic Architecture, Maharishi Sthapatya Veda. Dr Hardy is also director of a global trading company, and a Teacher of the Transcendental Meditation Programme in Great Britain.
The basis for Dr Hardy's recent remarks* was the 2009 international conferences on food security and climate change. He said that the world population is projected to increase by one-third from 2010 to 2050—to nine billion—and the demand for food will rise by 70%. This increasing demand placed on farmland for food, and the effects of estimated global climate change, are possibly the two most serious problems facing the world today.
In this context, he said, 'I wanted to show how timely this course on Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture is, because it shows us that there are solutions to these problems, and they are not theoretical solutions. They are practical solutions that are already working in some countries. If these solutions are working in some places, they can easily work everywhere and can be implemented everywhere.'
Not only that, said Dr Hardy, but these solutions are also more profitable than conventional, chemical farming practices currently used. 'This was one beautiful message that came from the course on Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture.'
Global Good News will feature further comments of Dr Hardy's in the coming days.

* Dr Hardy spoke on the 5 May Maharishi Global Family Chat, which is 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.
