"Zero Waste: A Permaculture Perspective on Waste Management"

Shabbazz Jackson and Josephine Papagni

Thursday, April 4, 6 PM, Friends Hall

In "Zero Waste: A Permaculture Perspective on Waste Management," Shabazz Jackson and Josephine Papagni present a
sustainable approach to the topic of waste. In this view, materials are cycled---reused, recovered, cycled back into
use--not disposed of. Jackson and Papagni's company, Greenway Environmental Services, has worked with college's and
communities to create important pilot projects in the region.

Their interest is in building community capacity, not just solving waste problems but addressing the social changes
required to implement new behaviors toward consumption and waste. Based on principles of permaculture, they have been
able to achieve a dramatic reduction to waste streams while enabling sustainable land management and food systems. Their
model program in Poughkeepsie, New York, began with work at Vassar College and has grown to address materials produced by
three colleges in the city. They have developed the ability, not just to talk about, but to achieve zero waste systems. In
their lecture, this husband and wife team will showcase their approach and the principles that underlie it. They will then
discuss several cases studies that apply these principles.

These include applications to homesteads, college and community practices and instituting municipal zero waste programs.

Free and Open to the Public
