Green Team MembersThe Garden’s Green Team includes representatives from all Garden buildings and from our off-site locations: Shaw Nature Reserve, the Butterfly House and Litzsinger Road Ecology Center. Meeting bi-monthly, the Green Team works collectively to implement sustainable office operations throughout the Garden. The team also hosts periodic lunch-and-learn and field trip opportunities, cultivating a broad sustainability knowledge base that Garden employees can apply in all working areas.

In 2010, the Green team launched the Green Today Greener Tomorrow campaign which celebrates successes in sustainable operations while at the same time promoting ways to improve.

From single stream recycling, food waste composting and energy reduction strategies, the Green Team strives to engage employees and volunteers in continually advancing the Garden’s green practices.
