EcoHouse is Southern Ontario’s only retrofitted environmental demonstration home that offers a unique opportunity to educators to show their students how to live more sustainably.  Visitors will see many environmentally friendly technologies and behaviours while touring the 150-year-old historically designated home and 2-acre property.  Sustainable living practices such as natural gardening, composting and vermicomposting, rain water collection, energy conservation, waste reduction and wise water use will be explained and demonstrated to students to show how they too can make changes to live more sustainably.


Please email or call 905-540-8787, ext 154 to book a program.
