After 22 Years: The Final Eco-Home Tours

After over 500 public tours, countless private ones and 15,000 visitors from
southern California and around the world; the award winning Eco-Home™ will be
closing its doors after twenty two years at the end of this month. Public tours
of the historic environmental demonstration home, where the term
"Eco-Home" was coined, will end with the last tour on June 27.

One thing that distinguishes Eco-Home is that it is a privately owned house
that was slowly changed over a period of 30 years on a modest budget from a
1911 California bungalow into an Eco-Home. Visitors receive guidance and inspiration to help turn
their own house into an Eco-Home.

Join us on Sunday, June 6 and Sunday, June 27 from 2:00 P.M. to 4:30 P.M.
for an Eco Home tour to gain the knowledge you need to turn your home into an
earth-friendly Eco-Home. In addition to some practical tips for greening your
home indoors, you’ll see outdoor water conservation in our front yard xeriscape
mini-forest and ways to reduce food costs in our backyard organic orchard and
vegetable garden.

The Eco-Home tour is an experiential introduction to sustainable urban
living. Participants will pick up ideas for home weatherization, water and
energy conservation, greater food security, solar energy and non-toxic cleaning
products that will help them make their homes greener, healthier and more cost
effective.

The tour is conducted by Eco-Home Network, a non-profit organization
dedicated to educating the public on making lifestyle choices that protect the
environment and improve quality of life. 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. For more information, visit our website
