The Art of Sustainable Living

Mark your calendars! The third annual BRING Home and Garden Tour: The Art of Sustainable Living takes place on Sunday, September 18 from 10 AM to 4 PM.

Participate in the BRING Home and Garden Tour and be inspired. Rethink your use of resources and help reduce our community’s collective carbon footprint. Learn about the benefits of smaller homes and secondary dwelling units, designed for compact urban living.

  • Leading-edge construction techniques as well as low-cost, do-it-yourself remodels
  • Passive and active solar applications
  • Energy conservation
  • Creative reuse of materials
  • Organic gardens, edible and medicinal landscaping
  • Rainwater catchment systems and water wise landscaping
  • A cob greenhouse and oven
  • Honeybees, and everyone’s favorite – chickens
Sites are clustered in Eugene neighborhoods for easy bike and bus travel. Ride the bus for FREE. Show your ticket or Tour Guide when you board any Lane Ttransit District bus on the day of the tour.

The City of Eugene and EWEB are co-hosts for this year’s tour.
