Watershed Management Group is excited to announce this year’s Desert Living Home Tour on Saturday, November 4th from 10a.m. – 3p.m.! Now in its 12th year, we’re teaming up with community partners throughout Tucson to show off creative and sustainable yards, homes, and community spaces for all experience levels and budgets in Tucson.
In the face of record breaking heat throughout Arizona and ongoing need for our cities and towns to reduce dependence on the Colorado River, there’s never been a better time to see water and energy-saving systems up close and to learn how to apply them yourself. Join this self-paced tour to experience desert homes that harvest rainwater and greywater, use solar energy, grow food and shade, and are examples of the hopeful hydro-local future we all want to see!
Tickets are $20, with sliding scale tickets available for limited-income community members. Registration also includes access to short, guided video walkthroughs of even more homes and community spaces.
Regardless of your experience level or budget, this tour will show design features that are accessible to you and benefit your home and community!
We hope you’ll join us to celebrate desert living, learn about designing for resilience in the desert, and leave inspired to reduce your energy and water use at home.
