Our mission is caring for the environment and educating the public about sustainability so that future generations in the Hill Country can enjoy it all.
Ten stops are on the tour scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 20, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Sustainable practices to be showcased on the tour include solar applications for electricity generation, water heating, and solar tubes as interior light sources. For those interested in water applications, there will be examples of xeriscaping and rainwater collection systems. Compressed earth block, rammed earth, strawbale, and “cool roof” type constructed homes will be included on the tour. Zero waste applications, an electric vehicle charging station, and a Chevy Volt (or two) and Tesla will also be on display. Maps will be emailed to online ticket purchasers. Program booklets will be available at our base home, listed as home #1 on the map.
Tickets for the Sept. 20 event are $25 and will include a map and a description of what is available for viewing at each home. Tickets are available online at www.fbgshines.org
