Cascadia Green Building Council, Eugene Branch invites green building professionals and interested community members to join them on a FREE tour of the 4-acre farm that sprouted up at Kalapuya High School over the summer. This working farm is complete with crops, a barn, a solar array, a greenhouse, bee keeping, and even a district farmer, Kasey White.  

This project is the product of  thousands of hours of work by students on the Kalapuya Summer Crew, staff, volunteers, generous donors and grants, and will allow students to practice leadership skills and experience hands-on learning. 

SWO ROAD TRIP OCTOBER 12!!! - Save the date!
Save the afternoon and early evening of October 12 for a chartered bus trip to the DL Johnson CLT plant in Riddle. Leaving Eugene about noon and returning by 8 PM, we’re planning an afternoon together with a studio of UO Architecture students focused on CLT.

Expect a lecture en route by a special guest, a guided plant tour watching live production plus plenty of Q & A, a stop on the way back at an Umpqua Valley winery, and a concluding lecture en route back to Eugene.

We’re expecting up to 4.0 CEU’s – all for under $50, maybe less! Look for a sign-up invite near the end of the month. First come – first served: space will be limited!

In preparation for adopting a new urban growth boundary (UGB), the City is asking for community input on key decisions that will help determine how Eugene will grow over the next 20 years.
