The 16,000 square foot education building is phase two of three for Heifer’s Headquarters in Little Rock. Exhibits will include sustainable farming and natural storm-water management techniques.

Phase one of the project has already garnered the highest level of certification, LEED Platinum, by the U.S. Green Building Council for its outstanding environmental efforts. Phase two will adhere to green building standards set by Green Globes.
