Project Living Proof

917 Emanuel Cleaver Blvd., Kansas City, MO

The Metropolitan Energy Center restored this historic residence in 2011 to demonstrate how century-old homes can be made more energy efficient. The site’s landscaping was designed in accordance with the Sustainable Sites Initiative, a voluntary set of guidelines and benchmarks for sustainable land design, construction and maintenance practices. Extension Master Gardener volunteers maintain the native plantings and vegetable beds and assist in the planning of the undeveloped areas. Produce from the garden is donated to the farmers market at the Ivanhoe Neighborhood farmers market and to Harvesters
