UMass Permaculture Opportunities

Dear Campus Community,

Thanks to your continued support, the UMass Permaculture Initiative has
had remarkable success in the creation of campus edible and sustainable
landscapes.  Your support has also furthered the development of
experiential and academic programing, and strengthened our local community
to be more resilient. Thank you for your support, UMass!
