Eugene’s Friendly Neighborhood eye-catching Common Ground right-of-way Cooperative Garden and Friendly Street’s ‘new urbanism’-styled Lucía-Community Village will be two of the highlights of the 2010 “Green Neighbor’s (not just) Bike Tours” when they roll through on the Friendly-West tour Saturday August 7th. More related here, here, here, and here. The Saturday tour starts at 11AM at Friendly Market, 2757 Friendly St. The 2010 tours continue Sunday August 8th in Friendly – East, meeting at 1PM at the Village School, 2855 Lincoln St at 1PM, and run through Sept. 25th, having visited 8 separate Eugene neighborhoods. Eugene Pedicabs will be on hand on the 7th for green-friendly cycling transport, as well as on subsequent tours. Car & vanpooling is also encouraged if you can’t bike.
Friendly Neighborhood has consistently set the Green pace in previous bike tours attendance, as well as catching note for the region’s growing Friendly Neighborhood Farmers social networking site, and this spring’s 2-chicken-limit ordinance ‘flap’ with City Council. Besides the Common Ground stop, the day will include a presentation on permaculture, a home with edible landscaping, a presentation on Friendly Street’s ‘new urbanism’-styled Lucía-Community Village, passive solar home design, green building, beekeeping, and more. Sunday’s tour will include a permaculture presentation, visiting a new PV solar installation at a College Hill home, as well as a visit to a home with an ultra hi-efficient ductless heat pump indoor climate system.
