Report Date: 
04/12/2011

This innovation grant proposal, which was funded in Spring 2011 presents an edible, self-sustaining permaculture landscape, composed of fruit trees (apple, pear, plum), perennial herbs and flowers, and other fruit bushes.  Designed as a haven for students and faculty to visit and enjoy an environmentally beneficial landscape, rather than a simple mowed lawn.  A long-lasting asset to our campus grounds, and a step toward making our space more environmentally sustainable, productive, and inviting this will be the first permaculture design on the St. Lawrence Campus.
