ACORN workshop on The Greening of an Old House

February 4, 2009 2:30 pm by

ACORN presents another of it’s “Fix-It-Up” workshops and the first in a series on The Greening of an Old House. Come on out Saturday, February 28th, from 9AM-noon to the St. John’s Church Parish Hall at 2401 East Broad Street and find out why and how to go green.

Blue Crump of CityspaceConstruction and CityspaceSolar will present information about how to make your older house greener and more efficient. According to the U.S. Green Building Council, buildings account for 65% of electricity consumption, 36% of energy use, 30% of greenhouse gas emission, 30% of raw materials use, 30% of waste output, and 12% of potable water consumption. Cityspace operates on the premise “that a greener house is a better built, more efficient house.” While they offer new construction services, renovations and remodels are a primary part of their business.

This is your opportunity to get answers to the questions, “Why– and How– do I go Green?”

RESERVATIONS REQUIRED. Cost for A.C.O.R.N. members is $10; for all others, $15.
