Watershed Management Group: Living Lab & Learning Center Tour
Come visit WMG’s Living Lab and Learning Center!
On this guided tour, you’ll learn about our rainwater harvesting systems, compost toilets, laundry-to-landscape greywater harvesting system, food forest, and more! The tour will be outside, so be prepared for the weather and to be standing or walking for the full tour time.
Tour highlight: Get ready to experience rainwater in a whole new way! We capture enough rainwater on site to support all of our indoor and outdoor water needs for our staff and guests, and we have filtered rainwater on tap! On the tour, you’ll learn about our filtration system, and can try the rainwater for yourself.
The Living Lab is also our office headquarters and was named AZ’s Greenest Workplace in 2015 by Mrs. Green’s World. More than a dozen staff members, as well as docents and volunteers, regularly make use of the native gardens, the composting toilet, outdoor shower, solar oven, and produce harvested from the food forest.
