Event Details

This tour will explore Sacred Heart's campuswide sustainability efforts, both built - including the world's first LEED Platinum for Schools project and a net-zero energy and water library - and grown - visiting the school's organic gardens and olive grove.

Sacred Heart School has made a priority of creating healthy learning environments where students can conceive of a more sustainable future. Join us in hearing how these goals were conceived and developed over the past few years!
