Watershed Row

brings people

together

in a landmark

green building.

             around

local food, art

& rock climbing

Watershed Row will transform a historic 1928 building into a community hub anchored by an artisan bakery and climbing gym. At its core is a love for the wild and working lands of the Klamath Basin. The project takes radical responsibility for its material, energy and water relationships to meet the Living Building Challenge.

Klamath Falls

Klamath Falls sits at the intersection of exceptional biodiversity, agriculture, waterways, national park land, and medical, military and educational institutions. Challenges, including water management, poverty and food insecurity, stand toe-to-toe with opportunities for real change. Watershed Row will model solutions to widespread challenges with small town heart and soul.

What is a watershed? 

A watershed is an area of land that drains to a common waterway, such as a stream, lake, aquifer or ocean. It can be as small as a slope of yard draining into a puddle or as large as the Mississippi River Basin. Large watersheds are made up of many smaller ones. 

 

The Klamath River headwaters gather in a high desert basin and carve their way through mountains to coastal temperate rainforest. Watershed Row is, itself, a tiny watershed within this larger system; all of the water that falls onsite flows to an underground cistern for irrigation, before ultimately settling into aquifers or finding its way to the Pacific Ocean.
