Interview: The Ecology School as a Living Community
Michèle Andrews, Executive Director at DoorNumberOne.org, enjoys a long conversation with Drew Dumsch who leads The Ecology School in Saco, Maine. Drew shares the story of The Ecology School, and the path they took to create a Living Community Challenge Master Campus Plan, the first in the world approved by the International Living Future Institute. They have also recently completed 2 Living Buildings, a new 200+ person dining hall with a fully electric commercial kitchen, and a 140+bed dormitory. The Living Building and Living Community are the most rigorous green building certifications in the world.
