Mac-Grove EcoTour

Mac-Grove EcoTour 

The date for the 2017 EcoTour is TBA. Interested in showcasing your home? Let us know! Email mgcc@macgrove.org for more information.

In the fall, take a self-guided tour of the neighborhood and visit the residents who will be hosting an open-house to showcase sustainable features to the general public. This event is a great way to learn from one another about the challenges and rewards of innovative and eco-friendly features around the home and garden. This is a Mac-Grove neighborhood version of the Minnesota Renewable Energy Society's Minnesota Solar Tour.
