Join us for an exciting and informative introductory walking tour of our eco-demonstration home and garden. Draw inspiration to reduce your climate impact and climate change’s impact on you. We’ll present ideas for do-it-yourself projects and explore such questions as: How can using recycled cardboard boxes restore the soil in your yard and allow you to grow a thriving, toxin-free garden? What is a food forest and how can you create one? How can a roof filter air pollution, help prevent flooding, and reduce the need for heating and air conditioning? On this introductory tour you will see: our toolshed built with four different natural building methods – strawbale, rammed earth, clay – all topped with a living roof; our constructed wetlands and simple laundry greywater system; an 1100 gallon rainwater cistern; a native raingarden; three kinds of compost; and, more. We’ll give you an idea of what’s possible for an urban home, and provide useful resources and referrals to help you take the next steps. Note: this tour is outdoors and does NOT include the interior of the house. Space is limited. Pre-registration required. Register online via Brown Paper Tickets. Call or email with questions. Cost: $5 general; Free for Ecology Center members
