Barbara expanded and updated the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s Best Practices manual and workbook to provide guidance regarding best practices for the care of structures and landscapes. While this manual included many policies specific to National Trust Historic Sites, its content and format may also be useful to historic sites and buildings across the country. Especially helpful is the Sustainable Practices chapter (Chapter 13, page 80), which includes advice for making historic sites greener – both through green housekeeping and capital improvements.
