We are excited to officially announce a partnership between GreenTown Joplin and the Drury University Hammons School of Architecture. This semester, students will work with us to design a model eco-home for Joplin that will serve as an information center and a showcase of sustainability, and feature a bed and breakfast suite where people can experience "green" living firsthand. Students will partner with us on the build phase during fall semester. We invite you to read the press release for all the details. The Drury architecture folks have already been instrumental in Joplin's recovery by creating a tribute to volunteers in Cunningham Park. The Monarch Eco-Home project is a demonstration of their ongoing commitment to help the community in its recovery. Stay tuned for updates, photos and announcements of partnerships. If readers have recommendations for potential corporate sponsors for this project, please let us know: info (at) greentownjoplin.org or 417-622-0612.
