Green home projects on display Sunday

 

Homeowners on Sunday can learn about techniques for going green, such as a custom-built straw bale home, a green kitchen remodel or an urban chicken coop designed with reclaimed materials.

The projects are on display throughout Spokane County as part of the second annual Green + Solar Home & Landscape Tour and Information Fair.

The free information fair will be held 2-6 p.m. at Eco Depot, 1326 East Sprague Ave., Spokane.

In addition, tickets are on sale for tours of new and remodeled projects showcasing differing sustainable design styles, construction strategies and lifestyle choices. Tickets range from $8 to $25 and can be picked up at Green Salon & Day Spa, 227 West Riverside Ave., Spokane.

The $8 rate is for those who wish to take a bicycle tour of five projects on the South Hill. Sunday is SpokeFest, the annual bike event with a series of route choices for riders.

The tour is sponsored by the Washington Department of Ecology, the Northwest Eco-Building Guild and the Emerging Green Builders.

Tour booklets and tickets are on sale at Auntie’s Bookstore, Eco Depot and the Main Market Co-op. Tickets can be purchased at Green Salon & Day Spa on Sunday morning.
