Hello! We need help from as many people as we can. Because your website is dedicated to recycled goods, I figured no harm in asking for your help in getting this post about UMass Permaculture which is a program dedicated to sustainable gardening.
The White House called it UMass Program letting people know they were ranked top 15 out of thousands in a Campus Challenge, “All Across America, college and university students are helping our country out-innovate, out-educate, and out-build the rest of the world” said President Obama. ”I hope this challenge shines a light on their efforts, and inspires Americans of all ages to get involved in their communities.”
The UMass Amherst Permaculture Initiative is a unique and cutting edge sustainability program that transforms grass lawns on the campus into diverse, edible, low-maintenance, and easily replicable gardens. Over the past two years students have create three community demonstration permaculture gardens that have engaged over 1000 students and more than a dozen local K-12 schools.
Permaculture is defined as ecological design for sustainable communities that involves people working together to care for the planet. It is considered to be the most sustainable form of gardening and farming and UMass Amherst is currently the only public university in the country implementing new permaculture gardens directly on campus each year and using the food in the dining commons.
Thank you so much for your help and/or support!!!
