When held at Maharishi University of Management last spring, it was 'a very dynamic course; there was so much audience participation we had to extend the course by two hours to encompass everything everybody wanted to go into', said Dr Swan. He added that the topic of agriculture, eco friendly gardening and farming, and soil regeneration is one that many people are very interested in these days.
The scope of the course is far-reaching. It focuses on a wide range of topics, from the creation and history of soil, the sharp degradation of soil in recent times, new agriculture and gardening techniques to combat soil erosion and degradation, composting, organic agriculture, and the benefits and principles of Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture.
Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture is the central theme of the course and Dr Swan goes into what makes this type of farming unique. He mentioned that, in addition to using the principles of organics, Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture utilizes ancient Vedic techniques to assist and nourish the crops in their growth.
'Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture has been one of the enormous gifts of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi to the world,' Dr Swan remarked.
Ultimately, he said, the course is an optimistic one. Though it notes the problems and challenges facing agriculture today, the focus is mainly on the innovative ideas and principles currently being utilized to improve the world's soil and food supply.
