Champions of Change: UMass Permaculture Garden Honored at the White House

The student-led Permaculture Committee was the top vote getter nationally for one of five spots in the White House's "Campus Champions of Change Challenge." UMass Amherst is currently the only public university in the country implementing new permaculture gardens directly on campus each year and using that food in its dining commons. Fifteen committee members traveled to Washington, D.C. on March 15 to accept the award.
