Greene Street Friends School

Greene Street Friends, a Quaker co-educational day school located in the historic Germantown section of Philadelphia, was interested in creating a new campus identity that encouraged deep green thinking and promoted environmental awareness on their urban property. Our volunteer team proposed ways for Green Street to demonstrate sustainable practices on campus with respect to water, soil, plants, and structures. Key strategic principles of the plan included: restoring nature in play, reintroducing a fabric of native plants and habitats, managing stormwater ecologically and fostering outdoor educational opportunities.
