Green Monona Tour June 14

From the Herald-Independent:

"Green Monona Tour"

On Sunday, June 14, take part in the first "Green Monona Tour." The tour will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will showcase environmentally-friendly steps taking place right in our own city - at homes, businesses, and churches. Tour participants can speak with those who have employed renewable energy technologies, energy-efficiency measures, rain gardens, pavers, rain barrels, or other green projects, learning how they have worked in practice, not just theory. Tour hosts can share what they have done to lessen their impact on the environment, save money, and nurture our community.

The Green Monona Tour was the idea of Nichole North Hester, a member of the City of Monona Sustainability Committee which is organizing the tour. Committee Chair Bob Miller says, "People who are interested in building or renovating their homes, putting in a rain garden, looking into renewable energy or the like can get a first-hand look at a variety of approaches. It's an opportunity to see small projects you can copy the next day, as well as get ideas for larger scale projects."


If you have implemented green measures at your home, business, or church, you can help others open the door to sustainable ways of living by being part of the Green Monona Tour. Please call the City of Monona at 222-2525 by May 8, and ask to be contacted about participation.

And if you haven't twittered at the Herald, you should give it a try - Adam is trying to put me out of the news biz!
