Today Emily, Charles, Julia, Claudia, Joline & Bill met with Univ of Maine Sustainability Alliance to discuss the possibility of transforming the abandoned York Village into a Sustainable Living/Learning Center on the LongGreenHouse model.

The project would unite LongGreenHouse, a food and wetlands corridor with root zone & pond, and the York cluster for student housing and community-based experiential learning.

We–along with our Wabanaki partners–were invited to present our project/proposal to Sasaki, the Boston firm designing the University Master Plan on Nov 1st.

Today we visited York Village to consider the possibility of taking on the greening of a University Dorm–along an arc of greening projects from LongGreenHouse, to a food corridor, to a wetlands walk to a campus Living Learning Center for sustainability.

Afterwards, we returned to LongGreenHouse to work on the swales, and green house and to discuss green building techniques with special guest, Richard Graves, currently on the National LEEDS board.
