Greenbreaking at Casa Heiwa


On April 12, 2011, Enterprise Community Partners, Little Tokyo Service Center, partners, and Little Tokyo residents met in the courtyard of Casa Heiwa for a "greenbreaking" ceremony. This greenbreaking marks the start of a retrofitting project in several of LTSC's affordable housing apartment buildings. These retrofits will reduce building costs, energy consumption, and overall impact on the environment. Watch this video, produced by LTSC's DIY Productions social enterprise, to find out more about this event and the positive effects of "green" retrofitting on affordable housing residents.
