Open House, Sustainable Suburban Design Competitions

How can we live sustainably on typical suburban properties? Visit this one-acre site in Keene to see many different takes on that question.
Learn about sustainable suburban living, make cider on a bike-powered press, and enjoy locally produced refreshments. Help celebrate the culmination of a unique design competition and envision how to realize the next phase of the project with the site as a sustainable living lab.
The event will showcase the entries from two Sustainable Suburban Design Competitions: the Suburban Backyard Homestead Design competition and the Sustainable Home Renovation Design competition. Awards will be presented to the winners, determined by designers Dave Jacke, Jono Neiger, Bruce Coldham, and Kim Erslev. Explore the possibilities of the site with Dave Jacke from 1 - 3.

Full schedule, including lineup of sustainability demonstrations and workshops, to follow. Check out the website: http://sustainablesuburbandesigncompetition.wordpress.com/
soon to get a taste of the designs. Come to inspire and be inspired!

    Hi Catherine, I'll be there by 10 and will stay as long until the end. In addition to offering a broadfork and sheet composting demonstrations, you can sign me up for whatever needs doing.
