September Eco-Home Tours


September is the perfect month to begin home improvement
projects that will provide benefits for the entire year. As students go back to school, the parents
they leave behind can begin to "green up" the home-front by creating
their own garden, re-creating their front yard so that it is more water
conserving and reducing their energy consumption. If this sounds good to you, but you don’t
know where to start; join us for a tour of the Eco-Home™ on Sunday, September
6th or Sunday, September 20th from 4:00 P.M. to 6:30 P.M.

Our experienced tour guides will explain all the products,
systems and procedures that make Eco-Home energy efficient and water conserving
and answer your questions about integrating them into your own home and
yard. You’ll learn about solar energy,
saving money on heating bills with insulation and weather stripping and
protecting your health with non-toxic/biodegradable cleaning products. The tour
includes the Eco-Home, itself, and the Eco-Home xeriscape and organic orchard
and food garden.

The tour is conducted by the Eco-Home Network, a non-profit
organization dedicated to educating the public on how to make lifestyle choices
that protect the environment and improve quality of life. The Eco-Home is
located in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles. Call 323-662-5207 for
reservation and directions. Requested donation for the tour is $10 per
person. Please make your reservations by
the Friday before the tour.
