Fredericksburg SHINES, a local organization dedicated to educating the public about sustainable living, will host their second annual Fredericksburg fall tour of homes to spotlight local examples of sustainable, green-living practices. Nine homes will be featured on the tour. Sustainable practices to be showcased on the tour include solar applications for electricity generation and water heating. Also, for those interested in water applications, there will be examples of xeriscaping and sites with various-sized rainwater collection systems – some large enough to replace wells. Tickets for the event include a driving map and a description of what is available for viewing at each home. Tickets may be purchased online. Proceeds will help Fredericksburg SHINES to position Fredericksburg as the sustainability capital of Texas by staging more community educational events and offering consulting for those interested in sustainable living.
