Lea Elementary School is the recipient of if the inaugural Public Project Award for Excellence in Green Stormwater Infrastructure presented this week by GSI Partners, an initiative of the Sustainable Business Network. We’re proud of our roots in this green schoolyard project: it got its start through a design charrette organized by the Collaborative in 2012.

Congratulations to the West Philly Coalition of Neighborhood Schools, School District of Philadelphia, SALT Design Studio, Meliora Design, International Consultants, Inc., ThinkGreen, LLC, and Philadelphia Water! Your tenacity and ability to collaborate are making Lea’s green schoolyard a reality and supporting Philadelphia’s green strategy for a cleaner water supply. Join Lea's "green team" for the ribbon cutting later this spring.
