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.

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