Join us for an exciting and informative introductory exterior 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? How can a roof filter air pollution, help prevent flooding, and reduce the need for heating and air conditioning? On this introductory exterior tour of the EcoHouse you will see: a native raingarden; a constructed wetland; a laundry-to-landscape greywater system; a living roof topped toolshed; a 1100 gallon rainwater cistern; a food forest; and, more. We’ll give you an idea of what’s possible for an urban home, and provide useful resources to help you take the next steps. This tour is outdoors and does NOT include the interior of the house. Tour starts promptly at 10am. Space is limited. Pre-registration required. Register online via Brown Paper Tickets.
