Check this out!
Permaculture has a chance to go to the White House! (And MTV!)

University of Mass at Amherst is hoping to win the "Campus Champions of Change Challenge" Go to
https://campuschallenge.uservoice.com/forums/148562-campus-champions-of-change-challenge
and vote for them! They had a huge lead, but just today, it's closing....They are in the finals, but they need ALLLLL of the permies to vote and to share (before March 3) with more permies! Come on, we can do it!
The top five vote getters will be invited to an event at the White House. They will also be featured by mtvU and MTV Act and be given the opportunity to host an episode of mtvU’s signature program, “The Dean’s List.”

Here's their blurb on the site...
The UMass Amherst Permaculture Initiative is a unique and cutting edge sustainability program that transforms grass lawns on the campus into diverse, edible, low-maintenance, and easily replicable gardens. Over the past two years students have create three community demonstration permaculture gardens that have engaged over 1000 students and more than a dozen local K-12 schools. Permaculture is defined as, "ecological design for sustainable communities that involves people working together to care for the planet." It is considered to be the most sustainable form of gardening and farming and UMass Amherst is currently the only public university in the country implementing new permaculture gardens directly on campus each year and using the food in the dining commons.

Please share A LOT on other lists and on Facebook!! Let's knock this vote thing out of the park and SHOW the President how much Permie Love is out there!!!


Peace,
Isabel
