Saturday, September 15, 10am-3pm, 873 Clover Dr. and six other locations in Columbus

Green living is the future and Simply Living members are leading the way. We have curated a highly-diverse selection of homes and garden experiences designed to help you learn from some amazing pioneers in sustainable living. You can visit the forest garden of Deb Knapke, central Ohio’s Garden Sage, and be inspired by her passion for ecological sustainability. Discover how permaculture design has transformed a modest backyard in North Linden. Find out how neighbors helped to install solar panels in Clintonville. Learn about the latest solar technology and EV [Electric Vehicle] cars from an electrical engineer. Hear how Jodi Kushins grew her garden into Over the Fence Urban Farm. Don’t miss Arter’s Garden (a short “Broad and High” video from PBS) in Old Towne East, where an artist’s touch has created an “East Meets West” design anchored by a Japanese Tea House.

This self-guided tour offers a unique opportunity to learn “what’s next” in your own home. A butterfly garden? Beekeeping? Native herbs? Or perhaps solar panels? An electric car? Get answers from homeowners who can make your transition to green living an enjoyable experience. It’s social too. Food, music, art, and literature on sustainability will enhance your experience in several locations.

This tour begins at any of the locations and will take place rain or shine!
