During a recent workshop on regenerative organic agriculture, Maharishi University of Management (MUM) faculty Dr. A. Thimmaiah helped a group of Bhutanese refugees learn to grow their native food while also learning to heal themselves and the planet. The workshop was the first of five meetings with Dr. Thimmaiah sponsored by Lutheran Social Services in Fargo, North Dakota.

''I was invited to assess their agricultural knowledge, and then build on that knowledge by integrating regenerative organic practices,'' said Dr. Thimmaiah. ''Because I was able to speak in Hindi and knew their villages, they really opened up. They felt as if I was part of their family.''

Dr. Thimmaiah is a former agriculture advisor to Bhutan and a top expert in organic and biodynamic agriculture who authored the national organic standards for Bhutan. [The organization] invited Dr. Thimmaiah . . . after they found an article online about his transformation of the agricultural system in Bhutan.

Dr. Thimmaiah is associate professor of sustainable living at MUM and heads the BA in Regenerative Organic Agriculture Program.
