Take the Historic Echo Park Home Tour Nov. 14; Better Yet, Volunteer!

This year's Historic Echo Park Home Tour, which runs from 11 to 4 on Sunday, November 14, highlights eco-friendly homes and gardens that use greywater systems, solar power, natural light, improved air flow, and drought-tolerant landscaping to reduce their energy and water use and benefit our overall air quality and environment. Urban farming and no dig gardening will also be highlighted during the tour.

Advance tickets are $15 and are available at through Nov. 13. Day-of tickets are $20 and are available at Williams Hall at Barlow Hospital, 2000 Stadium Way.

You can take the tour for free if you volunteer as a docent, who are also invited to the tour after-party starting at 5 pm. Docents can choose to volunteer from 10:45am-12:45pm, 12:30pm-2:30pm, or 2:15pm-4:15pm. For more information, contact Dave Ptach at
