Boxford BEST Home Tours, Solar Open House
Share this event
starts at 10:30am
Spofford Pond School, 31 Spofford Rd., Boxford, MA
Houses are not being built like they used to be. New houses have the capability of having no electric bills, but at the same time being all electric (i.e. use no fossil fuels). Sounds impossible, but it isn’t when using new building products and technologies that improve energy efficiency and that generate their own clean solar power. If you are interested, be our guest and come on our home tour as part of this larger event with Boxford Elementary Schools Trust (BEST).
BEST was founded in 1996 by two Boxford parents looking to bring a great technology and innovation to the public schools. The mission is to foster excellence in our public schools by providing grants to teachers and staff that help inaugurate longer-term elementary school initiatives and support innovative teaching techniques, tools, professional development or teaching strategies that create substantive positive improvements in their schools.
The Boxford Homes Tour is a self-guided tour through a variety of Boxford’s recently renovated homes. On the day of the event, you may pick up your tour booklets and map. Check in is between 10:30 and 2pm. You may proceed to each location at your own pace. The tour closes at 4pm. More details to follow.
All proceeds from the Boxford Homes Tour benefit the Boxford Elementary Schools Trust (BEST), an all-volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to fostering excellence in our public schools by raising private funds to supplement longer-term elementary school initiatives and innovative teaching tools, technology and teacher trainings. If you are interested in volunteering your time, or partnering with BEST in some other way, please contact us at [email protected]
