Larry's Beans, the fair trade and organic coffee maker, is offering a free coffee tasting and insider tour of its "green"-ovated bean plant on Saturday, May 15, from noon to 1:30 p.m. The recent renovation of the bean plant features passive solar design, wind-powered vents, rainwater harvesting, fruit bushes and even dual flush toilets. Doors will open at 11:30 a.m., and the tour begins at noon.
So if you're intrigued by this green renovation, or by tasting organically certified and fair trade coffee and local fare, sign up by e-mailing your name, phone number and number of those attending to email@example.com. Space is limited to the first 45 people to sign up, so you better hurry.
Are you looking to put a little more green in your home? Have you seen
great ideas on TV, but want to see how the results look in person? Now
you can with the 5th Annual Green Home Tour.
