Carmel Unified hosts grand opening of ecologically designed classrooms

We're living in an ecologically minded community, and Carmel Unified wants to show what they're doing to try to protect the environment. Carmel Unified School District and MEarth, its partner in ecology education, invite the community to join in the grand opening celebration for the new ecologically designed classroom.

There will be live music (from local keyboard prodigy Nico Georis) and healthy snacks (grown just a few feet away by students and staff). Visitors will learn about this new community resource. Free. The multi-purpose classroom was designed to model several “sustainable living” features, including: solar electricity, solar thermal, rainwater catchment, a living roof, passive solar design, responsible waste management, sustainable food choices, energy & water efficiency and eco-interior design.
