Phipps Conservatory: SEED Classroom


SEED: Sustainable Education Every Day

When Phipps botanical gardens and EcoCraft Homes partnered to build their SEED classroom, they knew they wanted every eco-friendly innovation to also be a teaching opportunity. That’s why they are including a SEEDpacket with their classroom installation.

The SEEDpacket guides schools through the educational opportunities built into every SEED classroom. These standards based educational packets come with lesson plans perfectly suited for any K-12 curriculum. Using these lessons transforms a green classroom into a living laboratory designed to teach students about their environmental impact. Coupled with intentionally exposed building systems, the SEEDpacket connects students with their classroom, giving them an incomparable sense of ownership of their own educational experience.

And that’s the core of the SEED classroom vision. Educators shouldn’t just be focused on minimizing environmental impact, they should be teaching kids how and why they should be doing it too. What can you do to minimize your impact? Contact EcoCraft Homes today and find out!
