Eco-Home Tour

This year’s April didn’t bring a lot of showers, and that
means another year of drought for Angelenos. The consensus is in – we all need to conserve and make the best use of
the water that we do have.

To see how, visit Eco-Home on Sunday, May 10 or Sunday, May 24
from 2 P.M. to 4:30 P.M. Our tour
directors will show you how to conserve water inside your home, use gray water
to irrigate certain trees and plantings and even how to change a high-water-use
grass yard into a low-water-use sustainable ecosystem. In addition to water conservation, you’ll
learn about making your home more energy efficient, view the Eco-Home food
garden and orchard, solar electric system and many other systems and products that
will help turn any house into an eco-home.

The Tour is conducted by Eco-Home Network, a non-profit
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.
