Spalding gives U-Me faculty and students a look under the cover at his quickly growing online community.

FEBRUARY_2008. Last fall Permaculture students at Still Water's LongGreenHouse erected a greenhouse, coldframe, and swaled gardens.

The ecological movement they have helped to disseminate, Permaculture, teaches techniques for capturing sunlight, redirecting streams, and reusing all the by-products of human households to sustain life in all its forms. The Yeltons have been named 2007 Still Water Fellows, and they have already begun re-envisioning the campus landscape according to Permaculture principles.
