Defining Permaculture:

Permaculture strives to create a closed loop environment where the outputs for one process become the resources for another. In nature there is no such thing as "waste." The concepts of permaculture are integrated into this space: earth care (taking care of, and restoring, the planet and its resources), people care (providing for food, community, and interactions with nature), and fair share (distributing excess resources). While this campus garden serves as a living lab for academic and research endeavors, it also inspires and engages community members, sparking their interest in becoming citizens invested in their immediate environment and the world.
