On June 30, 2009 the Herring Run Watershed Center announced that it is the first building in Baltimore to receive LEED gold certification from the United States Green Building Council. LEED is an internationally recognized green building certification system. With the help of architects Ziger/Snead and Baltimore Green Construction, the former Pelham Bakery building has been transformed into an example of green design. The building is outfitted with a green roof and native plant gardens, a composting toilet and recycled tile bathrooms, a tankless water heater, recycled oak floors, recycled countertops, low flow faucets, fsc certified cabinets, a self-monitoring lighting and HVAC system and more.
For an excuse to visit the center, consider participating in the vegetable gardening workshop to be held this month:
