Eco-Home Summer Tours

3:31 PM PDT on June 2, 2009

Summer is here, and there’s no better time to start
that long-overdue home improvement project or to begin your own urban
garden. To learn how to turn your yard into your own food garden or
sustainable eco-system, how to make best use of your water resources or
how to insulate your house to reduce your carbon footprint and cut down
on air-conditioning bills at the same time; visit Eco-Home on Sunday,
June 7 or Sunday, June 21 from 2 P.M. to 4:30 P.M.

tour directors will show you how to conserve water inside and outside
your home. You'll see a cool, shady low-water-use sustainable front
yard that used to be a high-water-use grass lawn. In addition to water
conservation, you'll learn about making your home more energy
efficient. The tour includes visits to the

food garden and orchard, a review of the solar electric system, and an
overview of 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.
