Save the date: May 1st 2010: The Blue Rock School of West Nyack, New York presents "Shades of Green: An Eco-Friendly Renovation/Restoration House Tour"
We will be one of several houses in Nyack, New York that is being featured on the tour. This is a chance to see up close, how we managed to construct a micro-farm right outside of our home. Our other "green features" include solar paneling, a salt water swimming pool, use of greenhouse heat to heat the house and use of normal geothermal energy to keep the greenhouse heated during certain times with minimal energy usage, rain catchers, and permaculture landscaping principles. Tickets can be purchased through the school (845-267-8268) and will benefit this independent private school in nearby West Nyack. Charlie and Pam will be here to personally answer any questions you have about starting your own garden in your backyard. One of our mascots, Henry Hudson, will be here as well to amaze and entertain.
Organic, sustainable and biodynamic seedlings will be available for purchase at the tour. You may pre-order here and we'll have your order ready when you get here.
