JP Green Living Tour 2019

Join us for Jamaica Plain’s first-ever Green Living Tour, and learn what your neighbors are doing to transition to a green, clean-energy future! The tour, sponsored by Mothers Out Front-JP, will showcase a range of different green features at a dozen or so homes and businesses – including air source heat pumps and geothermal systems for heating/cooling, solar panels, induction stoves, electric cars and bikes, backyard chickens and beekeeping, and composting options.

Almost all the tour sites are clustered along the South/Centre Street corridor (extending down to Lamartine Street) between the Monument and Hyde/Jackson Squares, as shown on the interactive map, below. Printed maps will be available in May at several locations, including 12 St. John Street, J.P. Licks, and Allandale Farm.

In addition to talking with neighbors about their transition to green living, wander around a mini-showcase of various models of electric vehicle (EV) and electric bike, with their owners available to answer your questions.  Explore the Old Oak Dojo, certified by the Living Building Challenge, the world’s most rigorous building standard. Pick up a bag of coffee grounds for your own compost at J.P. Licks, and collect a free J.P. Licks coffee coupon at a few select locations. Raffle tickets available at all sites for a single-burner induction cooktop, donated by Monroe Heyman, green Realtor.
