The 2017 Salt Spring Eco-Living and Home Tour will be held on Sunday July 30.
Come to Salt Spring Island and get inspired by innovative examples of eco-building, renewable energy technology, tiny homes, and sustainable living. “We challenge you to come away from this tour without an action plan for your own home and garden,” says tour organizer Elizabeth White.
The self-guided daylong tour includes some of B.C.’s most interesting examples of green living, including energy-efficient and passive solar buildings, rainwater harvesting, food production, renewable energy, and transportation alternatives. Tour sites, which range from a tiny-home to a large organic farm, push the boundaries of sustainable living. Visitors will see and get a feel for Salt Spring’s unique “boutique gumboot” style, emblematic of Gulf Islands culture.
Tickets are on sale online via Eventbrite at http://tinyurl.com/ssiecotour and cost $25. The 2017 Salt Spring Eco-Living and Home Tour is a fundraiser for Transition Salt Spring. http://transitionsaltspring.ning.com/
