    The students in “ENVIRON/RCIDIV 391: Sustainability & the Campus” invite you to presentations of their semester-long projects with University staff. 

    Opportunities for Permaculture Education at UM
    How could UM incorporate permaculture into curricular and co-curricular programming?  To conduct this project, students received a day of permaculture training, with a focus on the main components of the internationally recognized Permaculture Design Course (PDC).  After the training, students explored peer university programs and the existing UM course offerings to offer a final recommendation and implementation timeline for integration of permaculture at UM.

    Sponsors: Chiwara, Permaculture Design Team, UM Sustainable Food Program
