Location: Several locations in Waldo County – see details below)
Summer is a great time to explore eclectic Waldo County! On Saturday August 7, 2010 the Sheepscot Wellspring Land Alliance in Montville is offering a fun and educational tour titled Sustainable Backyards: a tour of homes, farms, and woods. This year’s tour and annual fund raising event builds upon their 2009 tour of gardens and home energy technologies, with a more diverse offering and a greater emphasis on sustainable practices and livelihoods.
Included on the tour is our office in Liberty, where you can see a 1.8 kilowatt grid-tied solar electric system, a 40-tube solar hot water system and Tarm wood boiler, and the G•O Logic Homes in Belfast, a “net-zero” home based on the German passive house standard, where we designed and installed the solar electric and solar hot water systems. Other stops include visits to local farms and forest.
Prices are: adults, $20; students $10; children under 12 are free. More information please call Sheepscot Wellspring Land Alliance 589-3230 or email: [email protected].
