Thanks to Kevin Riley of RileyDesigns.com, we now have a great new website and logo design that incorporates the feeling of a grass roots community based organization that values small local farms and quality food produced locally. Looking forward to the evolution of this project and this website!
Maharishi University of Management has recently started a new program to purchase produce locally. The purchasing criteria, called Fairfood, was developed by Sustainable Living faculty member Dr. Appachanda Thimmaiah, who wrote the organic standards for the country of Bhutan. The new standard prescribes no genetically modified foods, no synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, using hot composting for soil fertility, and other sustainable growing practices. This new standard allows local farmers who are not certified organic to sell their produce directly to MUM.
