Taking the LEED

May 3, 2010

I'm GREEN with envy and I know Jamie Oliver would be proud.  Sacred Hearts Schools' in Atherton, California is the first school to obtain the LEED platinum certification under the new LEED for schools program AND the first school in the county to use fruits and veggies from an on-site organic garden for the schools food service in the cafeteria! How cool is that!?  The school is also designed to use 69% less energy than a typical school and has some incredible green features, which you MUST read about here .
