As part of the growing need to find sustainable ways to provide organic, quality food for ourselves, our families, and our neighbors, more young people have become interested in organic farming. Now new programs are teaching children the importance of self-sustainable farming, and how to farm using age-old techniques.

A primary modern issue with farming, in many cases, has been a lack of education from one generation to another since many of our ancient seed-saving, planting, and harvesting practices have been lost to the corporate agricultural model. Now, we are finally starting to mend this escalating issue. For example, with one program run by Dr. Steve McLaskey of the Sustainable Living Department at Maharishi University’s organic farm, students learn how to organic farm in every aspect, and their success has been astounding.

With the use of just a small, one-acre plot and a few greenhouses, students learn every aspect of growing organic vegetables. They plan, operate tractors, coddle seeds into seedlings, make compost, prepare the land, and even sell the produce they grow at the local farmer’s market. Students of the University have an opportunity to learn state-of-the-art organic growing processes and organic farming.

Students learn how to prepare the land for planting, and get rid of caterpillars by spraying a non-toxic bacteria on plants. They learn when certain vegetables need to be planted and harvested, how to manage and plan irrigation, including preparing for rainy days, and every aspect of what it would take to run their own organic farm.
