Eager to live more independently, tap into nature’s energy grid, lessen your environmental footprint and save money in the bargain? The first Sooke Ecohome Tour on Saturday, Oct. 8 offers seven examples of how the renewable energy and alternative housing revolutions are taking root in the region.

Stops along the 19km circle route include the Built Green Canada gold-certified Harbourside Cohousing on the Sooke waterfront; the cob house at  ALM Organic Farm; a work-in-progress rammed-earth home in Otter Point; a 135-sq. foot tiny home;  and a trio of private residences — two with solar arrays installed by Viridian Energy Co-operative and a third constructed of natural materials by Keary Conwright Natural Homes.

Tickets will be available only on the morning and early afternoon of event day, Oct. 8th, at the Stick in the Mud Cafe, on Eustace and Otter Point roads in the heart of Sooke starting at 9:30 a.m.

Ticket prices: $5 per individual; $10 per carload (car pooling encouraged!); free to pedestrians and cyclists. 

The Sooke Ecohome Tour is sponsored by the Real Estate Foundation of BC with additional funding support from BC Hydro and the District of Sooke.
