UMass Permaculture Your Campus Conference 2013

UMass Permaculture Your Campus Conference 2013 www.RevisioningSustainability.com In June 2014, we're hosting the Revisioning Sustainability Conference at The University of Massachusetts! At the international Permaculture Your Campus Conference 2013, directors of the award-winning UMass Permaculture Initiative will give an introduction to permaculture in a campus setting and share the value that it has created for the University of Massachusetts system and local community.
(1)

Participants will learn how to develop a successful permaculture initiative for their campus and will leave with their own individualized action plan for their own campus permaculture initiative.

Mission: What's permaculture? Put simply, permaculture is a whole systems approach to sustainability that allows us to meet the needs of people today while improving the quality of the environment for future generations. About the UMass Permaculture Initiative: The UMass Permaculture Initiative is a unique and cutting edge sustainability program that converts unproductive grass lawns on the UMass Amherst campus into ecological, socially responsible, and financially sustainable permaculture landscapes that are easy to replicate. Over the past year, an outpouring of students, staff and local community members led to the creation of three educational permaculture landscapes at the University of Massachusetts Amherst involving over 1,000 campus volunteers and over 300 local youth. Together, UMass Dining staff and volunteers prepared the soil by layering over 500,000 pounds of UMass compost, recycled cardboard, and campus wood chips without using any fossil fuels on-site.
