Picture yourself strolling around the pastoral beauty of Chatham University’s Eden Hall Campus, drink in hand, music and conversation filling the air. Not only will you enjoy delicious, fresh food (much of which is sourced from the campus grounds!) but you’ll also gain an in-depth understanding of Eden Hall’s commitment to sustainability and innovation.
The Eden Hall campus – located on 388 acres in Richland Township, is home to the Falk School of Sustainability & Environment. It is a living classroom where faculty and students collaborate to develop the next-generation tools and processes that will provide social, economic, and environmental benefits to our communities and to our world. The campus uses sustainable technologies and methods to model new approaches to solving challenges in Water; Energy & Climate; Food & Sustainable Agriculture; Design & Planning; and Communities & Health. Features of the campus include extensive green infrastructure, on-site wastewater treatment, a large solar array (400 panels), a certified organic farm, high-performing buildings, and much more.
During this member appreciation event, we’ll learn about the development of the Eden Hall Master Plan, history of the site, and the progress that has been made to date. We’ll explore some of the features on campus while sampling food along the way.
The tour will include a look at the following:
5:30 – Arrival, Registration, Drinks, Opening Comments
5:50 – Tours and Food
7:00 – Exploration, networking
8:00 – Shuttle bus departs
For those who are interested, GBA will be providing a shuttle bus to campus (departing from the GBA office). The bus will depart GBA at 4:30 and will depart Eden Hall at 8:00. If you would like to join the shuttle bus and/or if you have specific dietary requests, please email Ben Hochstetler at email@example.com.
Registration for this event is limited, and we must have our final numbers for catering and shuttle service in advance. Therefore, registration will close on June 13.
Partnering with USGBC and AIA, GBA makes it easy for our members to report continuing education credits. Please provide your GBCI and/or AIA number so we can auto-report your credits (for applicable events). Non-members can still earn continuing education credits but will need to self-report their GBCI CEUs.
A very special thank you to our Summer Soiree partners and sponsors:
