Hands-on Education Center
The Center for a Sustainable Future will serve as an immersive, project-based learning center for agriculture, horticulture, environmental science and renewable-energy technologies. The 75-acre site will allow for teaching traditional and emerging sciences while preparing, updating and retraining people for sustainable careers. The facility and site has been designed to achieve Net-Zero energy use and a LEED Platinum rating. As such, the Center will model best practices for ecologically-responsible design in Lenawee County and will assist in the promotion of natural resource conservation, land stewardship and sustainable agriculture.
