Eastside Eco Homes Tour
See gray water systems, solar power, passive cooling, composting, organic vegetable garden, bee keeping, a modern chicken coop, even a green wedding. Meet the owners as they describe their efforts and their mistakes. Homes and people that are highly technical in their approach to footprint reduction and homes and folks who are down to earth and simplistic in their approach. It all works and it is free. Runs from Noon-4, 13 eco homes open for viewing. [detailed info and locations and map here] $5 suggested donation (for the whole tour), if you can afford it, it gets you a free stainless steel water bottle and proceeds go to support the new"green" magnet at king middle school to open in fall of 2011.
