Mark your calendar to join the Myakka River Branch of the USGBC Florida Gulf Coast Region on this special educational tour of the Florida House Learning Center. We are proud to partner with Transition Sarasota and Florida House Institute to show off this unique learning space.
Our Florida House and Edible Landscape Tour and Tasting includes light bites with fresh organically grown creations from the garden. Attendees will tour the building with Director John Lambe, and the landscape with gardener-extraordinaire Camille Van Sant while enjoying a glass of beer or wine.
Twenty years ago, the Florida House was the USA’s first “green” building open to the public, and helped catalyze the green-building industry. Today, Florida House is poised to be the country’s first high-performance demonstration of improvements and retrofit strategies for existing buildings and landscapes.
This program is part of Transition Sarasota’s Eat Local Week, to find out more about this and other Eat Local Week events click here. Questions concerning this program should be directed to Roger Landry.
