Instead of citing scholars from all over the world with a dozen letters after their names, Towards Perennial Learning synthesizes the ideas of college students who have taken a course introducing them to perenniality, and to its applications in agriculture, society, and education. Why college students? Because after more than a dozen years of being students, they've earned the title of experts. Author and editor Victoria Andrews, one of these very students, worked to curate the reflections of her 34 classmates, spread over two years, about what a Perennial Learning Center could be. She brings out the best of her classmates’ reflections in a rooted, real, relatable, and well-argued book that students, teachers, parents, administrators, and education scholars can benefit from.

Here is what one reviewer said about the book:

"What is education for? What are the possibilities for healing and regeneration when we reconsider the aims and pedagogies of education in the face of ecological tipping points and injustice across the planet? Fortunately, students at Middlebury College have been considering these questions and exploring the possibilities. Towards Perennial Learning gathers the insights and wisdom of a new generation that educators—and learners—everywhere can benefit from." Emily Hoyer, Institute for Agroecology, University of Vermont
