4136 Tivoli Avenue

This is a unique offering on the tour as they are living the Green Life that many of us aspire to.  Sustainable Works will also be a special guest presenter at their garden.  This is a great stop for tips on how to make your own home more sustainable.

Learning about the health risks of pesticides, herbicides, and genetically modified seed, these homeowners decided to grow their own organic vegetables in their backyard. They created and installed a water drip systems for the garden watering the vegetables everyday with a few drips of water.  Water is also collected from the metal roof and collected in a rain barrel, which is connected to a water drip system running underground all the way to the front of the house watering the plants a few times a week with the collected rain water.  They are also using a composting bin.
