Sustainable Home Tour

We want to thank all of you for another successful MRES Sustainable Home Tour 2016!

The weather could not have been more perfect for this years MRES Sustainable Home Tour, which featured energy efficient, renewably powered, and all around sustainable homes all around Minnesota.

The day started at The Rose with a guided tour of the cities most sustainable apartment building. Everyone seemed to like the stop at Northbound Smokehouse and Brewery, which offered $3 beers to participants while sitting underneath a new patio covered in solar panels. Since the weather was so beautiful, it made it that more perfect. The day finished off at Kismet Cottage with food, drinks and discussion about how to influence more people into living sustainably.

The tour could not have been a success without all of the wonderful volunteers and participants. Thank you all.
