We have welcomed international leaders in green building,  architecture and engineering students, and high school and junior high students.   There is no charge for a tour, but an honorarium is requested.  Tours for individuals are not available.  To schedule a group tour contact Erick Emerick at 215-241-7190 or click here to contact by email.

We are happy to consult with owners and managers of institutional and commercial buildings who are contemplating green technologies.  Contact Christopher Mohr, Executive Director, 215-241-7191. (We don’t have expertise in greening homes. Click here for links to Greening Your Lifestyle.)
