The Excellence In Action page of Global Good News is featuring a certificate course in regenerative organic agriculture offered by Maharishi University of Management.*
The 10-month program in the next generation of organic farming will combine classroom instruction with six months of field work learning all facets of organic agriculture. The field work will take place at the Center for Regenerative Organic Agriculture, which includes 26 acres of land with facilities such as classrooms, food processing areas, a kitchen, and offices.

Regenerative agriculture is a self-sufficient, closed-loop system in which all the inputs required for farming are produced by farmers on their farms using only the naturally available resources within their farms.
Program director Dr. A. Thimmaiah says, ''World leaders in this field will be helping to teach this course. This is a great opportunity for students to have a global understanding and to learn solutions to the present unsustainable, exploitative farming systems.''
''This course will be of interest to anyone who has a passion to create radical change in the current food and agriculture systems,'' Dr. Thimmaiah said. ''The students can be food activists, farmers, food advocates, home and urban gardeners, or future organic farmers.''
