The Charlottesville Waldorf Foundation is building the “greenest campus in America” for the Charlottesville Waldorf School (CWS) – the fi rst 100% Low Impact Development site in Virginia, and the fi rst school in the U.S. to use the Passive House design (nearly net- zero energy use). For over 25 years, CWS has taught global environmental responsibility as integral to its curriculum. With this green campus - and demonstrating its fi scal wisdom and pragmatism - we pave the way for a sustainability movement among other schools, corporations and individuals.
