Green Home Information Tour - Saturday, Aug 23

ECO (Environmental & Conservation Organization) of Western North Carolina has 5 homes to display during the 2008 Green Home Tour. This tour requires guests to drive themselves, but encourages carpooling by offering discounted tickets to those who will drive in a group of 3 or more.

You will view the homes and have the opportunity to meet owners and local eco builders. You will learn about green technology and how it saves energy and water (and as a bonus, saves you money!) and works with the natural environment.

The 5 homes include: garden watering with rain barrel technology, edible landscaping, salvaged wood for building materials, passive solar heating, radiant floor heating, a newly constructed home with the distinction as a Gold Certified Healthy Built home, energy efficient renovation, computerized energy consumption measurement, and more.

Saturday, August 23
10 am - 4 pm
$15 per person, $13 if traveling in a group of 3 or more
