Higher learning, green building style, in Vermont [Video]
Tour the campus of Yestermorrow Design/Build School where the 'best of yesterday and the technology of tomorrow' co-mingle. Seminars in treehouse design and beehive building, anyone?

For more green design/build goodness out of rural Vermont including a slew of on-campus demo projects (mouldering toilets! Earth ovens! Straw bale cabins! Yurts!) and a complete listing of academic offerings (two-day courses in compost-powered hot water or "Table Saw Trickery," anyone?) head on over to the Yestermorrow Design/Build School
homepage. Celebrating its 33rd birthday this year, the nonprofit institution serves as (one of) the nation's only sustainability-minded design/build school. But seriously, it's like shop class-meets-summer camp but instead of a wooden doorstop or napkin holder that only your parents could love, the final project is a solar-powered cabin with a composting toilet.
