Recently, groups of San Marcos citizens have taken the initiative to promote environmentally friendly activities in our community. Two of these initiatives include Campus Garden, created by Texas State graduate, Josiah Reece, and SMTX Permaculture, a group of people committed to making the world a better place by creating self-sustaining agriculture for our community.

 Reece, visited our KTSW studios during Other Side Drive to talk about a new garden he helped put together on campus. He tells our hosts, Harrison and Stephanie, about the many obstacles he had to face, as well as the number of people who helped him along the way. Josiah lets us in on the details of this on-going project; it’s an inspirational interview about taking action and being able to change the things we know can be better.

 Permaculture is a branch of ecological design that uses the patterns in nature to create a sustainable and self-maintained agricultural system. Zach and Rachel from the organization came into the studio to get people informed on this rapidly growing hobby and lifestyle, as well as to spread the word about Permaculture events on the way — including the Permablitz!
