Students and community members have been hard at work on four projects through the fall semester:
- Compost Power - Students are researching the Jean Pain Method, developing educational materials for agricultural enterprises in the MRV, surveying potential users, and providing a final report.
- Waitsfield Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) Program - Students are researching PACE programs nationwide, identifying barriers and opportunities for PACE, providing a synopsis of key housing data metrics, and provide a report that will serve to inform best practices and next steps.
- Mad River Valley Health Center - Students are developing a snapshot of the MRV from a health perspective by mapping local health resources, developing a strategy and survey to assess community health needs, collect data, and providing a final report and recommendations for improving the health status of MRV residents.
- MRV Solar Farm - Students are researching other co-operatively owned/managed solar projects nationwide, surveying and compiling responses regarding potential interest in such a project, developing education materials, and providing a report on education materials and survey responses.
Please come out and make this a true celebration of the students hard work and community togetherness!
