Eco-Sense 2008 Tour Schedule - Sustainable Home Tour Schedule

Ever wanted to see what sustainability looks like within the building code? Ann and Gord Baird

With a wish to demonstrate sustainability in simple ways, they have built a home that works with nature and uses less. Less water, less waste, less energy. The home then uses sustainable systems to provide for itself, through solar PV with a grid intertie to BC Hydro, solar thermal collection for space heating and domestic hot water, grey water, rain water harvesting off a living roof, composting toilets and more.

See earthen floors, natural plasters, LED lighting, how to address code barriers, searching used material suppliers... and much more.

Due to demand, Eco-Sense will be open for tours throughout the spring and summer; alternating Sundays from 10am till noon.

Cost $12. Please book your spot via phone or email. Topics include sustainable energy, earthen building, code and policy, and philosophy of sustainability.
