Show Us Your ‘Green’!

 

Northwest EcoBuilding Guild – 2012 Green Home Tour – Call for Sites & Sponsors

Seattle Green Home Tour

Announcing call for Sponsors for 2012 Home Tour

The 2012 Green Home Tour hosted by the Northwest EcoBuilding Guild (NWEBG) is underway. People want to ‘do the right thing’ when it comes to remodels, retrofits, and new construction but often times need to see “green” in action and how the benefits to people, planet, and profit unite in everyday practice. To that end, the inaugural 2011 Green Home Tour hosted 28 sites and over 1,250 visitors with great success! This year we’re planning to build off that success and make it bigger and better! There are 4 ways to participate:
  1. Showcase Your Project. (early bird deadline Jan 16, 2012)
  2. Showcase Your Services/Products through Sponsorship.
  3. Volunteer Your Heart Out.
  4. Attend and Tell Your Friends to Attend!
Two Tours – One Great Weekend! 2012 Green Home Tour is being hosted by the Seattle and the South Sound Chapter April 21 & 22, 2012. Puget Sound Cooperative Credit Union has already stepped up as an event sponsor, and we’ve just gotten started!  The earlier you get involved, the greater benefit will be realized by everyone!! Website updates are underway, in the meantime contact Cate O’dahl, Event Lead (Seattle Chapter), 425-670-1342greenhometour@ecobuilding.org.
Last year Wallingford was in the center of it all.   It gave people a chance to see the house with the “living wall” and see how many other features were “out of sight”! Mark your calendars now as this year promises to be bigger and even better than last year.
Curious to see what the “Guild” is about. Attend one of the monthly evening meetings at the PNA in nearby Phinney Ridge. Go to the website Northwest EcoBuilding Guild for a meeting schedule and to involved or just to learn something new!
Hope to see you Earthday weekend 2012!
