Permaculture Spreading to Massachusetts Elementary Schools | Reclaim, Grow, Sustain

Permaculture Spreading to Massachusetts Elementary Schools | Reclaim, Grow, Sustain | Space, place and time | Scoop.it
place-and-space's insight:

Tripper O’Mara, an Auxiliary Services employee who recently graduated from UMass, will be working individually with the Wildwood, Fort River and Crocker Farm elementary schools  to help them design their own gardens. The gardens will be similar to the permaculture gardens located outside of the Berkshire and Franklin dining commons.

 

The permaculture gardens – which are types of gardens that try to mimic natural growing patterns – will then be planted in the spring.

 

The project – which is funded through a grant the from the Creative Economies Fund, a part of the UMass President’s Office – sprouted from a desire to find more direct ways to give back to the community.

Open Policy Network - CC Wiki | Space, place and time | Scoop.it

As open advocates, organizations and policy makers recognize the potential for open policies to significantly increase the amount and quality of publicly funded education, research, data, and software, there is a pressing need to provide them support so they can successfully create, adopt and implement open policies. Open policies promote open licensing of resources financed through public funding in order to maximize the impact of the investment.

William Kamkwamba - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

William Kamkwamba (born August 5, 1987) is a Malawian inventor and author. He gained fame in his country when, in 2002, he built a windmill to power a few electrical appliances in his family's house in Masitala using blue gum trees, bicycle parts, and materials collected in a local scrapyard. Since then, he has built a solar-powered water pump that supplies the first drinking water in his village and two other windmills (the tallest standing at 39 feet) and is planning two more, including one in Lilongwe, the political capital of Malawi.

After being forced to drop out of school due to his family not being able to afford the tuition (~US$80), he took up self-education by going to his village's library. There, he found the book Using Energy and in it discovered a picture and explanation of windmills. He then decided to try to create the windmills he read about. After a few attempts, he was able to build a working model.

His story is told in The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind: Creating Currents of Electricity and Hope, written with journalist Bryan Mealer and published in 2009.[2] Kamkwamba took part in the first event celebrating his particular type of ingenuity called Maker Faire Africa, in Ghana in August 2009.[3]
