Logan Simpson Gives Back to Las Vegas Community for Green Apple Day of Service
On Sept. 29, more than 1,250 service projects took place in 49 countries to make schools healthier, more sustainable places to learn. The Nevada Chapter of the US Green Building Council teamed up with Jerome Mack Middle School in Las Vegas for the Green Apple Day of Service. Logan Simpson, a landscape architecture and environmental planning firm, developed the planting and irrigation plan for the garden, and coordinated donations from nurseries, irrigation companies, and contractors.
The garden, on the Flamingo Arroyo Trail next to the school, will be used to teach students about water conservation, native plants and traditional uses of these plants by indigenous people and early settlers of the Las Vegas Valley. The Green Apple event had more than 40 students, teachers, parents and USGBC participants.
