    On Saturday, Sept. 27, 2014, the Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council will host the third annual Green Apple Day of Service

    For one day, advocates from around the world, including students, teachers, parents and elected officials, as well as international green building councils, USGBC staff, chapters, member companies and more, will come together in support of healthy, sustainable schools by taking action in their communities.

    Projects ideas include: creating a raingarden; painting rainbarrels; conducting an energy audit; hosting a recycling drive; or holding a tour of a green school. 

    There will be more details to come on events sprouting up in New Jersey- but these events rely on you. This is a grassroots campaign, and you decide what will work for your school and your project.
