George Washington Carver believed “nature produces no waste” and neither should people.

The Carver Bust offers visitors the chance to hear George Washington Carver’s voice reciting the poem “Equipment” by Edgar Guest.

Be sure to plan at least one hour for an easy hike. For many visitors walking the 3/4-mile Carver Nature Trail is a tranquil experience. One can clearly capture the same enthusiasm young George showed for all of nature.

George Washington Carver, Founder of Today’s sustainability movement. “He said, “I always sleep over a problem. I go to sleep with it on my mind, and the next morning I see the method and the new perspective which usually clears it up. I did not do it. God has only used me to reveal some of His wonderful providences.”

(From the book George Washington Carver: God’s Ebony Scientist by Basil Miller, Zondervan Publishing House; 1963.)

“The original vision of George Washington Carver who, over a century ago, pioneered the creation and commercialization of sustainable biobased products and materials and energy derived from renewable agricultural feedstocks. ”

“George Washington Carver is considered one of the founding fathers of the chemurgy movement, whose modern-day analog is industrial biotechnology. Industrial biotechnology companies today are developing new methods to use renewable agricultural resources to manufacture new alternative fuels, materials (like bio-plastics and biochemicals), pharmaceuticals and food ingredients. The field has developed in ways that Carver may never have imagined, but the work of industrial biotech companies remains true to the goal of a sustainable bio-economy.”

“when you do the common things in life in an uncommon way, you will command the attention of the world”
― George Washington Carver

“I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in.”
― George Washington Carver

“How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these. ”
― George Washington Carver
