As part of our education and outreach mandate, EcoReality needs to continue to engage the public to educate and inform.


For at least four years, an ad-hoc group of Salt Springers has organized an "Eco-home tour," based upon houses with salient ecological features, such as natural building, alternative energy production, or water management.

This year, they have broadened their vision and changed the name to "Eco-living tour," and invited EcoReality to take part, stressing the co-operative nature of our situation.

Many of us thought we were not ready for such an event, but the organizers would like to use our site as a staging area for "homeless" participants, such as a builder of 100 sqft houses and a reseller of electric bicycles and scooters.

In addition to hosting such "homeless" participants, we will hold periodic farm tours, do biodiesel demonstrations, and provide minimal props to explain our co-operative working structures.

Goal or deliverable

  1. Work plan for when who will be where, doing what.
  2. Materials plan for demonstrations and props.
