Eco Home & Garden Tour
May 4 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
350 Bay Area’s inaugural Eco Home & Garden Tour is planned for Saturday, May 4, 2019.
Climate reports from the IPCC and our own federal government make a very clear case; climate change must be addressed with urgency. The recent air quality in the Bay Area due to California wildfires brought that message home. 350 Bay Area is responding, assisting local cities to declare Climate Emergencies and working closely with Sacramento and Bay Area regulatory agencies to pass and implement programs to reduce fossil fuel emissions and increase clean energy.
To increase 350 Bay Area’s reach in the community we are pleased to announce our first home tour. This tour will raise funds for 350 Bay Area’s climate work, will educate the community on how to increase their ability to live more sustainably, and encourage action necessary to fight this crisis.
Do you consider your home green?
We are still looking for Green Homes in the Berkeley, Albany, and Piedmont area. Are you interested in sharing your home with others who also wish to lower their carbon footprint? Are you passionate about sharing your green adventure?
While there is no universally accepted standard definition for a green home, there are certifications (LEED being the most common) and generally accepted guidelines on what makes a home green. Homes we are considering have some basic sustainable elements, which may include: renewable energy, water conservation, sustainable landscaping, green building design and materials, and reduced waste. To be considered for 350BA’s tour, it is not necessary to have all listed elements and in fact you may have incorporated different green design ideas in your home. If you consider your home green and want to share it with others, we want to talk to you!
Please send an email to Karen@350bayarea.org and we will get back with you to talk about the details. Please also share this request with others you know in the community with green homes.
Want to help plan this event?
Together, living more sustainably and sharing knowledge, we can impact the crisis of our time, the climate crisis.
