Tour Green Homes at Green House Festival in Brookline

Mothers Out Front, a grassroots group of mothers and other caregivers working to ensure a swift, complete and just transition away from fossil fuels and toward clean and renewable energy, has organized a green home tour from noon to 3 p.m., April 8, in Brookline. This is an open house event in which everyone is welcome to visit homes that have adopted solar electricity, electric cars, induction stoves, heat pumps and other clean technologies. Homeowners will be available to answer questions and there will also be activities for kids.

This event is part of a larger Climate Week event organized by Mothers Out Front. Run by moms and caregivers on a volunteer-led basis, these events are their answer to all the backpedaling and climate denial at the federal level. “We’re taking local action to inspire other families and residents to take meaningful action in their own homes and create change from the ground up,” says volunteer Amy Traverso.

Cost: Free. Location: Multiple sites. Map is available at GreenHouseFest.org.
