4th Annual Homescape Harvest Tour

On Saturday, 25 October 2014, the Watershed Management Group presented the 4th Annual Homescape Harvest Tour. In partnership with the WMG, BICAS led a bicycle tour of 10 of the 22 sites open for the tour. The map below shows the route taken on the tour and photographic highlights from the stops. All you need to do is click on the image and it will open the interactive map in a new window.

The Homescape Harvest Tour was very inspirational. There are a lot of people in Tucson that are harvesting rainwater and greywater, planting local and desert-adapted plants, keeping chickens, raising fish and crops in aquaponic tanks, composting their waste, and taking advantage of Arizona's abundant sunlight to lower their energy use (and costs).

View the tour for yourself and see if you don't also get inspired!
