SUNDAY, APRIL 16TH | 10 AM - 2 PM
In the next installment of our series of Green Homes Mini-Tours, we are looking at the ways in which our yards and gardens can help heal the earth.
We invite you to visit three properties with yards that are making a positive impact in unique and creative ways.
- Learn how a “zero waste” family of five has been able to produce 70% of their food on a 700 sq foot plot - with plenty to share with friends and neighbors. (SDSU area)
- Check out the ultimate in re-purposing: a backyard swimming pool converted to a pond, as part of garden that protects pollinators and other wildlife. (La Mesa)
- See how one homeowner was able to stabilize a steep hillside, provide fire protection, conserve water and regenerate soil using native plants and hugelkultur. (Scripps Ranch)
NOTE: This location is open from 10am to noon only.
Tickets are “pay what you can”! (Suggested donation for non-members is $10)
Please note: this is a self-guided tour.
Addresses on the Green Homes Tour will be sent to you prior to the event.
