I just spent all day Friday in my Board Training for the Kentucky Chapter of United States Green Building Council. (USGBC) Wow, what a day. I am so excited to be part of a group that is creating such major changes for the better not only in the built world but in all of humanity. This is the organization which has developed the LEED rating system, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, along with much more, and is truly a leading organization in the world of sustainability. Our Kentucky Chapter is only a few years old, but is growing by leaps and bounds, and we have much work to do. The time to change is now and we have to move quickly.

This chapter site discusses the new LEED Silver project, the Oldham County Library in LaGrange. Which Boone Gardiner did landscaping and site development in all sustainable ways.
