Climate Action and Adaptation Tour at the EcoHouse 8/13/11

Draw inspiration to reduce your impact on climate change, and climate change’s impact on you. We’ll present ideas for do-it-yourself projects with a tour that features our toolshed built with 4 different natural building methods–strawbale, rammed earth, clay, and cob–all topped with a living roof; our ground-breaking constructed wetlands and simple laundry greywater systems; an 1100 gallon rainwater cistern; a native raingarden; 3 kinds of compost; and a lot more. What saves more energy, a flash hot water heater or a solar one? What are the 3 biggest ways that keeping ducks in your backyard will lessen your climate impact? What is a food forest? Features on the tour include a wide range of easy to more difficult energy, water, materials, and landscaping choices.
