November Eco-Home Tours

Thanksgiving is one of the few times a year that modern Americans celebrate the achievements of the Native Americans. No matter how advanced society becomes, there will always be things that we can learn from the example set by the first inhabitants of North America. They believed in living in balance with nature and leaving as little waste behind as possible. If you have a goal of living a sustainable, healthy lifestyle, join us on an Eco-Home tour on Sunday November 1 or Sunday November 15, and Sunday November 29. Each tour will begin at 2:00 P.M. and end at 4:30.

The Eco-Home tour is an experiential introduction to sustainable urban living. In addition to a tour of our front yard xeriscape and orchard and food garden, tour participants will pick up ideas for home weatherization before the cool winter, water conservation and a healthier home with non-toxic cleaning products.

The tour is conducted by 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. 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.
