Hummingbird Project comes to the college

Through the efforts of Dr. Rashmi Jaipal, a psychology professor who uses her summers to visit social justice organizations around the world, the Hummingbird Project will be visiting Bloomfield College to discuss organic and sustainable farming as it impacts the global economy.

Members of the NGO will be at the college on Monday, March 25 to present to the Cultural Psychology class at 4:00 p.m. in College Hall 135. On Tuesday, March 26, the representatives will meet with the Green Hearts Movement members at the cooperative garden for lessons about soil regeneration, composting and raised-bed gardening. These lessons will not only help the progress of the student-operated garden, but is a good education for all who want to cultivate an organic garden in their own backyards. At 4:00 p.m. that day, there will be a presentation in the Shelby Room of the library about their work in Africa and India. All are welcome to attend the events.

According to their website, the primary purpose of the Hummingbird Project is to create sustainable systems using permaculture principles that enhance and benefit communities by educating and empowering individuals to improve quality of life and foster stewardship of the earth. In collaboration with Navdanya, a network of seed harvesters and organic producers in India, The Hummingbird Project trains farmers in techniques to keep their farms viable using readily available organic materials and grow crops that have not been born of genetically modified seeds. They are creative and resourceful in applying these strategies in different agricultural contexts in different cultures to help farmers get productive yields without having to resort to chemical farming.

This project is being funded by the Predominantly Black Institutions (PBI) Formula Grant.
