"Green" Church

A green church committee worked to design and install a bioretention cell, which takes stormwater from the parking lot and a native plant garden. The church received a grant from the Dakota County Soil and Water Conservation District for the project. Check out the fact sheet about the project. 

In addition, the church did an energy audit to find ways to reduce energy use. Student interns also calculated the church's greenhouse gas emissions and recommended ways to improve the sustainability of the church.
