Island Ingenuity Tour September 22, 10AM-3PM
Have you ever wondered what people are doing behind those closed doors and garden gates? Now is your chance to take a peek! Your neighbors will be showcasing ways they have chosen to simplify their lives, save money, and conserve resources. Some people have found ways to make their vegetable gardens more productive, are growing their own meat, or using their own trees for construction. Others have cut down on their energy bills using more efficient utilities or by weather stripping their older homes. Many are collecting rain water to supplement summer irrigation or feed wildlife ponds. They are throwing open their doors and gates on Saturday September 22. Download a map and more information here.
