Planting the Seeds | DIY with Reclaimed Materials

Take a break from your studies and come craft corn-hole boards from salvaged materials with our partner Lifecycle Building Center. This event highlights the Materials Petal, for you will have a first-hand view of the interplay of different materials as you craft.

There is no cost to participate but you must register as space is limited. Please note that 2-4 individuals are needed to build one set of corn-hole boards. Sign-up with a friend, or you will be placed in a group. All supplies are supplied. Please wear closed-toe shoes and long sleeves/pants.

The Living Building Challenge is a green building certification program and sustainable design framework that visualizes the ideal for the built environment. The standard uses the metaphor of a flower, with seven performance areas called petals. To celebrate the launch of the Living Building at Georgia Tech, the Office of Campus Sustainability will host a series of seven events to explore each of the petals - place, water, energy, health + happiness, materials, equity, and beauty.
