Episode Guide »
Pittsburgh, PA. - Over 100 years ago, wealthy businessman Henry Phipps built the Phipps Conservatory as a gift to the city of Pittsburg at the height of our nation's industrial revolution. Today Phipps has become a model for public gardens and conservatories around the world for sustainable building practices, energy conservation and eco-friendly methods. In the process, the Phipps Conservatory has earned the distinction of being "America's greenest garden" and the greenest conservatory in the world.
