Fall EcoHouse Tour: Climate Action and Adaptation

Sunday | October 22, 2017 | 10:00 am

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 recycled cardboard boxes restore the soil in your yard and allow you to grow a thriving, toxin-free garden? Is rainwater potable and is a permit required to install greywater systems?

On this introductory exterior tour of the EcoHouse you will see: a native raingarden; a constructed wetlands; a simple laundry-to-landscape greywater system; 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.

Note: This tour is outdoors and does NOT include the interior of the house. Space is limited. Pre-registration required. Tour starts promptly at 10am!

Space is limited. Pre-registration required. Register online via Brown Paper Tickets.
