Come get inspired and learn new skills at the EcoHouse with a tour of the site and gardens followed by an introduction to herbal medicine.

Begin at 10am with a tour of the Ecology Center's EcoHouse demonstration site and learn about simple improvements that can be made to green an urban home. The tour includes: Berkeley's first city-permitted wetland / greywater system, rainwater cistern and water catchment strategies, a laundry greywater system, a living roof garden, organic permaculture gardening, solar panels, on-demand and solar water heater, natural and recycled building materials, native drought tolerant plants, mushroom cultivation, earthworks raingarden, drip irrigation, and more.

Next, longtime teacher Joshua Muscat presents the Introduction to Herbal Medicine clinic, providing core concepts to learn about and use herbs. He'll cover medicinal uses of plants, gardening, safety and more. Joshua operates the San Francisco Botanical Medicine Clinic, http://www.sfbmc.org. The interior of the home is not included on this tour.
