There’s a unique event this Saturday October 27th in Ottawa – a Green Home Reno Tour. EnviroCentre has organized the Green Home Reno Tour to showcase several older homes where targeted renovations have resulted in improved comfort and significant energy and cost savings. The tour will be of interest to people who own or are thinking of buying an older house, those planning renovations, and any homeowners interested in increasing the resale value of their home. As well, it will be of interest to contractors who want to share their existing sustainable renovation practices, or learn more about what others are doing.

The day is planned to include site visits, networking, a trade show and a delicious meal. The cost is $20 per person, which includes the bus transportation and meal. Envirocentre collaborated with the Social Planning Council of Ottawa and Tucker House to organize this unique tour.

The schedule:

9 AM:  Registered participants meet at City Hall for coffee and snacks

9:30 AM:   Bus departs for first destination

Noon:  Refreshments served

2:30 PM:  Afternoon meal at Tucker House, followed by trade show

4 PM:  Bus departs for Ottawa, arriving just in time for dinner.

Here’s the link to register. Hope to see you there!
