Tom Newmark, the former CEO of New Chapter, Inc., one of America's most respected and successful organic vitamin companies, is deeply devoted to environmentalism, conservation, and organic herb production, and has more than a decade of experience within the regulatory environments of the natural products industry.

He is co-owner of Finca Luna Nueva, an eco-resort and biodynamic organic herb farm in Costa Rica that provides tropical-grown botanicals for some of New Chapter's products. This April, the Sustainable Living Department at Maharishi University of Management is offering an MUM Rotating University course on tropical organic agriculture and rainforest ecology, which will be co-taught by Mr. Newmark on the Finca Luna Nueva farm.

He recently gave a talk entitled ''Organic Agriculture to the Rescue: Using Ancient Farming Wisdom to Heal Our Broken Atmosphere,'' as part of the MUM Distinguished Lecture Series. His thesis was simple yet profound—that we can end global warming by converting all agriculture to organic agriculture.

Mr. Newmark became a teacher of the Transcendental Meditation program in 1974. ''The faculty and students at the Sustainable Living Department are thought leaders, bringing fresh vision and consciousness to the critical environmental challenges facing our planet,'' he said.
