Greensburg GreenTown is a charitable nonprofit organization working in Greensburg, Kansas to rebuild the town following the devastating tornado in May of 2007. The town has made a remarkable comeback, reinventing itself as a model for sustainable building and green living now recognized around the world. GreenTown works to make green building and living easily understood, appealing and accessible to all.
The Architecture class from Kansas State University has been working diligently on a project they hope will be of great benefit to the community. They spent the semester designing affordable, sustainable homes - the plans for which are available to people who are rebuilding. These architectural plans are available both in booklet form and on CD. The students, along with Professor Gary Coates, returned to town on Sunday, December 14, to present the final models and plans to the community.
