UMass Permaculture Documentary Series

UMass Amherst is one of the first universities in the nation to begin growing a permaculture garden directly outside of their dining halls to feed the campus community local, fresh, nutrient dense foods.

 

Τhis video series takes an in depth look at the first phase necessary for completion of the garden: Soil Preparation. Through the perspectives of key figures involved in the planning of the project, we learn of the origins and the obstacles to its implementation. There is a breakdown of the process of sheet mulching, explaining why the method works and the need for specific nutrients that the soil is currently lacking. The video demonstrates how volunteers, the school, and The Permaculture Planning Committee's support is making this groundbreaking garden a reality.
