LEED-certified Green House Tour (Event)

On May 30, 2012, at 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. a LEED event titled "Certified Green House Tour" will take place in Harding Township, New Jersey. Ever wondered what you could do to your home to make it a more environmentally friendly place to live? This unique tour highlights the planning and implementation that goes into constructing a LEED-certified home.  This event will teach people about LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and other eco-friendly building terms.

Participants will tour a property in Harding Township which manages 100% of its roofline runoff from rainfall into a series of rain gardens, and has cisterns that store rain water for use in toilets and hose bibs throughout the main house.

This event will address the design and construction that is involved in undertaking a LEED project. Group size is limited.

Members: Free. Non-members: $10.
