Green blog of interest> The Most Sustainable Classroom The Phipps Conservatory and Botanic

The classroom was installed at the Phipps Botanical Gardens on March 17th. They still need to decorate the interior and add the green wall, as well as install decking and finish up the landscaping outside. They hope to open the classroom on April 25th. The classroom is intended to be used by children aged 2 right up to adults and seniors. In other words all visitors to the botanical gardens will be able to benefit from learning at this classroom, which will do a lot to bring sustainable living practices into general awareness.
