The UMass Permaculture Initiative Staff is a team of motivated individuals who, guided by the core principles of permaculture, work to ensure that the daily operations of the initiative are running smoothly and effectively. Our staff consists of sustainability coordinators, designers, and permaculture professionals - all of whom focus on facilitating a program that empowers and inspires communities on campus, while working to expand the program's global reach.
The recent White House recognition of the UMass Permaculture program has triggered a lot of interest in our permaculture courses.  The UMass Stockbridge School of Agriculture offers several opportunities for students to earn college credit for courses and/or practical experience in permaculture.
