Abstract

On this project, I developed and conducted an environmental audit for Heifer International's Overlook Farm in Rutland, Massachusetts. This audit consisted of two sub-audits related to energy consumption and waste management. Through data collection and analysis, the project reveals that Overlook Farm is stronger in waste management than in energy conservation management. The project provides recommendations to Overlook Farm for how to make its waste and energy management systems more sustainable.
