FFS Wins Excellence in Green Stormwater Infrastructure Award

 

Frankford Friends School’s Nature Learning Lab was celebrated at the Excellence in GSI Awards Ceremony in May.  FFS won the Excellence in Green Stormwater Infrastructure Private Project Award from the Sustainable Business Network of Greater Philadelphia (SBN) and the Green Stormwater Infrastructure Partners.  FFS Head of School, Kathryn Park Cook, accepted the award on behalf of the school.  The Nature Learning Lab was designed by Think Green, LLC, Meliora Design.

When Frankford Friends School was bequeathed the parsonage across the street from its main campus, the school was excited to work with the Philadelphia Water Department and Think Green to develop what is now the Nature Learning Lab.  FFS received support from the PA Department of Environmental Protection and the Philadelphia Water Department and led a capital campaign to pay for the innovative and attractive way of managing storm water.
