From Plant Doctor to Peanut Man
Dr. George Washington Carver, scientist, inventor, educator, artist, musician and humanitarian, was the first non-president to have his birthplace dedicated as a National Monument. His fame began by transforming southern agriculture with crop rotation methods and making significant contributions to Agro-engineering in the early 20th Century.
Much about his legacy as a conservationist and naturalist was lost as well as his philosophy on environmental sustainability.
The Carver Memorial Planning Board's mission is to restore some of his destroyed legacy, attempt to republish lost archives, revitalize his vision of sustainable agriculture, and work to begin an effective campaign for a National Holiday in his honor.
Join the Campaign for Carver and commemorate Dr. George Washington Carver and other environmental Heroes on (Green Pioneers Day).
