On December 5, Golden Year 6 (2009), the Commissioner of Agriculture of Maharashtra State in India, Mr. Prabhakar Deshmukh, was presented the Shining World Leadership Award by representatives of Supreme Master Ching Hai. The Award recognised the State’s outstanding eco-friendly efforts to promote the health and stability of our environment through wholesome organic farming. Once a grower completes the course, they will be expected to cultivate at least one hectare of land under this agricultural method. In addition, certification is also being made available for those who wish to export their produce.
In the Award letter, Master wrote, “The system will create 6,500 hectares of land under organic farming and once this significant milestone is achieved, it will create a ripple effect, attracting and inspiring many more to follow.” Our accolades to the esteemed leaders of Maharashtra for your great foresight and outstanding governance. Blessed be all such endeavours to share the wholesome and plentiful benefits of organic vegan farming.
