WMG’s Living Lab and Learning Center is our cream of the crop demonstration site and beats the pants off LEED standards! Our interactive tours showcase our systems in detail. Tour highlight: the Living Lab is water self-sufficient! We have rainwater on tap and currently meet 100% of our water needs with rainwater, greywater, and stormwater. By the time you leave, you'll be overflowing with project ideas for your home.
The Living Lab connects us—the people, plants, animals, land, and water of the Sonoran Desert. Since starting the development of the Living Lab and Learning Center in 2012, we have seen it is so much more than a physical place.
