Sustainable Solutions

Welcome to

Here you will find information and resources to support sustainable problem solving. This includes the following

  • information regarding the book Sustainable Solutions,
  • student web pages featuring their project work in the capstone course of our Sustainability Studies major & minor at Muhlenberg College,
  • my blog about specific issues and ideas regarding sustainability,
  • information about the ongoing work of the Center for Regenerative Agriculture for Africa (CRARA), and
  • our development of a novel soil amendment, SoilPop, to support regenerative approaches to agriculture and home gardening
