The West Penn Power Sustainable Energy Fund and the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens in Pittsburgh have organized an August 18 workshop and tour of its Center for Sustainable Landscapes housing groundbreaking sustainability research, education programs and serves as a key part of the garden’s visitor experience.

-- Living Building Challenge, the world’s most rigorous green building standard;
-- LEED Platinum – tied for the highest points awarded under version 2.2;
