Open Space

Greenfield Home & School Association

In 2006, a group of public elementary school parents and teachers proposed a green schoolyard to enhance their environmental education program. A conceptual design and preliminary cost estimate helped jumpstart their fundraising campaign and led to the full development of the project. Greening Greenfield inspired other school groups to pursue greening projects and the city to incorporate green schoolyards into its open space and stormwater management strategies.
