Middlebury

A network of microphilanthropy that supports Middlebury students.

Connecting With the Land Through Sustainable Practices (Las Marias, Puerto Rico) In this trip we will work with Plenitude – an eco-educational non-profit organization which teaches the skills of sustainable living through permaculture practices. Participants will engage with local community members through hands-on activities such as installing new gardening beds and planting areas, maintaining wet lands, managing compost, and using the local knowledge to explore sustainable practices to ‘connect with the land’ in Puerto Rico.

Twelve Middlebury students will be traveling to Las Marias, Puerto Rico over February break as part of a Middlebury Alternative Break (MAlt) trip. MAlt is a student organization that provides student-designed and student-led service trips for Middlebury College students. MAlt offers opportunities for students to participate in strong direct service that seeks to address needs as determined by a local community partner. MAlt is committed to a needs-blind acceptance policy. As a result, we do extensive fundraising to ensure that participants’ financial needs can be met. We all work together to support one another, which is why this fundraiser is so critical to our efforts.
