This spring students at the University of Illinois initiated a study of permaculture design at the Sustainable Student Farm on the South Farms of the Urbana, Illinois Campus. The study is called Restoration Agriculture, and the goal of the project is to compare the production of traditional corn and soy bean agricultural plots with plots that consist of woody perennials.

Great to see Universities (in this case University of Illinois) getting involved in permaculture.

Resulting research facts can help to build a shift from our current destructive agricultural practices to biennial / polyculture / permaculture practices.
