The Annual Three Rivers Green Home Tour was started in 2007, as part of the Three Rivers Environmental Weekend and is organized by the local group which calls itself the TREW Crew, led by Three Rivers artist, Mona Fox Selph. The Green Home Tour has been part of the American Solar Energy Society’s national annual tour for many years.
Homes qualify by being either active or passive solar, and offer a myriad of green architectural innovations such as rammed earth, straw bale, and adobe construction, earth berm, sod roof, and recycled components.
The tour has raised funds for Tulare County Citizens for Responsible Growth and the Sierra Club. Homes have included a multitude of inspiring and beautiful features as well. One of the homes shown in the 2010 tour, known locally as “the glass house” was Sunset Magazine’s small space winner for 2009-2010.
Tickets are $15 per person, $25 per couple.
Call 559-561-4676 to reserve a space.
The Tour starts at 12 noon or 1 pm, for two separate tour groups.
Meet at the Valley Oak Credit Union on Hwy 198 in Three Rivers, to join car pools.
