Food Production within the new ‘Living Building Challenge’ design and assessment system

Leeds Beckett is leading an initiative to develop a local overlay for LBC. We’re currently running workshops to work out how to translate this ‘deep green/holistic’ US development accreditation system for UK use. (Google and Sky are currently building high profile projects in Britain to LBC criteria).
