Also, Lisa referred to the building at the Robert Mondavi Institute that houses the August A. Busch III Brewing and Food Science Laboratory and the teaching and research winery. She hinted at the building's LEED certification but did not explain it in detail. This newly completed building is expected to be the world's first winery/brewery/food processing facility that has a platinum LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification - the highest environmental rating awarded by the U.S. Green Building Council.

The mission of the UC Davis Good Life Garden at the Robert Mondavi Institute for Wine and Food Science is to expose and educate a wide audience to the relationship between good food and good health. The garden landscape, web site, blog, graphics, marketing and promotions are all designed and maintained by staff at the UC Davis division of Campus Planning & Community Resources.
