Fredericksburg SHINES, a local organization dedicated to educating the public about sustainable living, will host a Fredericksburg fall tour of homes to spotlight local examples of sustainable living practices. Nine homes are on the tour and will feature such practices as solar power generation, water heating, clothes drying, well pumps and solar tubes for interior light sources. There will also be examples of drip irrigation, xeriscaping and rainwater collection systems. Tickets include a map and a description of what is available for viewing at each home.
