New garden wouldn’t be in place without faculty leader guidance

Thank you for the coverage of Earth Week on campus and especially of the permaculture demonstration site. I would like to clarify one part of the story, however. Somehow lost in the interview with me was my statement that the lion’s share of the credit goes to the students and above all to Karryn Olson-Ramanujan.
Ms. Olson-Ramanujan led the original research team that proposed and designed the project last spring, provided expert guidance and performed countless uncompensated hours of work in support of the implementation this spring. Without her, this beautiful new place on campus would not exist.
