ACHF has partnered with BikeAthens, an alternative transportation nonprofit, to showcase examples of “green” building methods and to educate participants on safe biking strategies for our area and encourage discussion on walking, biking and public transportation options.
Heather Benham, Director of Operations at the Athens Land Trust, will discuss infill within historic neighborhoods as well as Earthcraft standards incorporated within the Athens Land Trust headquarters on Pope Street. Lori Bork, of Bork Architectural Design, Inc., a full-service design firm in Athens, will present information on the sustainability features of each of the properties visited and will also provide a tour of her LEED Platinum home.
A third property in Cobbham will illustrate sustainable indoor and landscaping principles. The interiors of all homes will be part of the tour.
Tour stops include properties in Pulaski Heights, Boulevard, and Cobbham. Water will be provided, but BYOB (Bring Your Own Bike).
This should be a really fun event and not too
