The Lenawee Intermediate School District (Adrian, Mich.) Monday formally opened the Center for a Sustainable Future.
The $4 million, 9,000-square-foot building and its surrounding 75 acres of fields and forests will serve as a living laboratory for the future of agriculture.
But as important as agriculture is, this spectacular new educational asset is a whole lot more than that.
The CSF is also the first net-zero-energy-use education building in the state of Michigan. It’s aiming for LEED Platinum certification, the highest energy efficiency certification for buildings that exists.
