EcoHouse Tour: Climate Action and Adaptation

This event has passed.

Join us for an exciting and informative 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.

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 you get your roof to filter air pollution, help prevent flooding, and reduce your need for heating and air conditioning?

This introductory tour features our toolshed built with four different natural building methods – strawbale, rammed earth, clay, cob – all toped 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 a lot 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.

Pre-registration by email or phone required.
