The UMass Permaculture Initiative has had remarkable success in the creation of campus edible and sustainable landscapes, the development of experiential and academic programming and the strengthening of local networks toward community resilience.
On June 23-26, 2013 the University of Massachusetts Amherst is hosting the second annual Permaculture Your Campus Conference 2013!
