Permaculture is a regenerative strategy that restores ecosystem health through sustanable and mindful design. Large green areas on campus should be used to create native, edible landscapes that will supply dining services and students with a local and organic food source. This will reduce our reliance on fuel for food transportation, serve as an educational medium, and involve the UVM community with the source of the food they consume. Compost from campus facilities could be kept on campus and be used to build and maintain soil health for the permaculture plots. The gardens could be planned and upkept by a committee or club of interested students and community partners.
