display_description"Make grass grow"...These simple words formed the basis of George Washington Carver's life's work. How do we maximize resources and minimize waste? How can tired land be made new again? What can we do to live in harmony with the land, which supports life? Born into slavery in Missouri, Carver sought an education at a time when open prejudice and hatred kept African Americans from most educational avenues. He traveled all over the country, learning as much as he could about art, poetry, and the natural world. All the while, he tried to give back to the people who needed the most help. He became a teacher, a researcher, and a spokesperson, passing along important knowledge about farming, the land, and survival. Known famously as "the Peanut Man," George Washington Carver brought sensible and life-saving concepts to people across the country, making a difference in the world despite the adversity he faced in his time and place.
