The mission of the house is not just to showcase green building strategies, but to educate visitors on them as well. Local authors Alyson Beaton and KJ Bradley entertained a group of eco-savvy tots with a reading from the recently published book Grow. Afterward, kids learned from Purple Asparagus how to prep an organic snack. The meal clean-up included showing the group how to feed melon rinds to a worm composting bin.

Out of the home’s five bedrooms, our favorite may have been the cheery and colorful nursery. The walls are covered in a clay-based paint that is free from toxins. All of the furnishings, bedding, and floor coverings are made from natural and organic fibers.
