WILD Wes Interest Meeting


From our friends at WILD Wes:

sprawling green lawns = excessive water + pesticides + fertilizers + fuel for mowers + labor costs + storm runoff + algae blooms + monoculture + monotony

permaculture = rain + helpful microbes + insect and animal habitats + fruits + vegetables + herbs + colorful flowers + perennial plants + shade (from trees, not people) + compost + resilience + natural “pest” control + bees + butterflies + water storage + low-maintenance

WILD Wes = Working for Intelligent Landscape Design at Wesleyan = permaculture + free produce + teamwork + exercise + learning + praxis + FUN

Stop by the brief interest meeting today to learn more about how we can make this campus (and the world) a more sustainable and beautiful place. Especially if you live in the butts or westco and are curious in what’s growing in your courtyard! There is also the potential for paid summer positions. If you can’t make it, email

Date: Thursday, March 5 (Today!)
Time: 7:15 PM
Place: Allbritton 318
