March Eco Home Tour

For Angelenos, Spring is already in full swing in March. What better way is there to celebrate
the changing of the seasons than to change our own lifestyles to live eco-smart,
healthier lifestyles?

Join us on Sunday, March 7 or Sunday March 21 from 2:00 P.M.
to 4:30 P.M. for an Eco-Home tour to get started on a new, green lifestyle. And,
on the March 7th tour, only, Mr. Rick Wheeler,
Certified Arborist of Island Mountain Tree and Plant Services will do a demonstration of proper fruit tree pruning
in our backyard organic orchard!

The Eco-Home tour is an experiential introduction to
sustainable urban living. Participants will pick up ideas for home
weatherization, water and energy conservation, increased 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
