This series of tours uses our Living Lab as a living laboratory, giving you access to working systems to improve soil health, care for your urban forest, grow a cornucopia of tasty Sonoran foods, and more. Join us for one, or every month! Register online!
WMG’s Living Lab and Learning Center is our cream of the crop demonstration site and beats the pants off LEED standards! One of our WMG staff members or trained volunteers will give an interactive tour so you can learn about all the systems in detail and what you can do at your own home. Breaking news: the Living Lab is now water self-sufficient! We have rainwater on tap and meet 100% of our water needs with rainwater, greywater, and stormwater.
The Living Lab is also our office headquarters and was named AZ’s Greenest Workplace by Mrs. Green’s World in 2015. More than a dozen staff members work on campus regularly using the composting toilet, outdoor shower, solar oven, and produce harvested from the food forest.
Bring the kids to enjoy the Raindrop Retreat – a children’s playhouse featuring a rain tank, play kitchen with greywater, and sandbox. We provide rainwater education for all ages!
The tour takes place outside, so be prepared for the weather and to be standing or walking for over an hour.
