Urban Green Lab

In honor of this green-filled holiday, we’re featuring Urban Green Lab, The Village Fund’s non profit of the week!

Its future location in Inglewood by Riverside Village, Urban Green Lab will be Nashville’s very first sustainable living community center. Visitors will get to learn about energy efficiency and urban gardening through workshops and classes. Urban Green Lab is expected to be Tennessee’s first platinum certified LEED-NC building and will embody the highest possible principals of sustainable practices, according to its website. Their mission is to help make sustainable living a bigger part of our everyday lives in homes, neighborhoods, and businesses. It is scheduled to open in 2013.
