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.

earth-friendly Eco-Home. In addition to some practical tips for greening your
