The popular event will showcase 13 homes located in South Park, Normal Heights, Pacific Beach, Point Loma, La Jolla, Encinitas, Vista, Lakeside, Bonita, Jamul, San Elijo Hills and Campo.

Now in its ninth year, the tour is an opportunity to get ideas, find inspiration and explore various green features in real-world settings. Among this year’s highlights:

  • A green renovation of a historic 1912 home in Pacific Beach, which was built by renowned sculptor Donal Hord, with original landscaping by Kate Sessions, the “Mother of Balboa Park”
  • A net zero energy adobe ranch-style home in Campo featuring strawbale construction that is one of only 27 projects in the world to earn the rigorous certification by the Living Future Institute
  • A creative residence in Lakeside constructed from three recycled shipping containers
  • A new multi-million waterfront home being built in La Jolla, striving for net zero energy, with sustainability at the centerpiece of its elegant modern design

The self-guided tour runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 21. Tickets are $15 per person. More information is available online.
