Backstory: In October, 2010 UMass Amherst transformed a 1/4 grass lawn on campus into a diverse, low-maintenance, edible, educational, and model permaculture garden that is also easily replicable. Learn how this student-led project can be easily replicated and spread to other campuses, institutions... any piece of land for that matter. UMass Amherst is one of the first university's undertaking a project like this, directly on campus, and supplying the food to its dining commons.
