Premise: On May 4, 2007, the Kansas town of Greensburg was struck by an EF5 tornado that destroyed 95 percent of the rural community. Residents decided not only to stay and rebuild, but to do so in an environmentally conscious manner. This series documents activities in Greensburg as the entire town is reconstructed from the ground up to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards. This isn't the easiest task to accomplish, as the residents soon learn, but their hard work and dedication eventually pays off as the newly designed, eco-friendly town slowly begins to blossom.
