environmentally-friendly gardens in Arlington! The tour will include
Arlington homes with green renovations, green roofs, solar panels, rain

This year there is a new spin on the tour with a guided cycling option
coordinated by several other local green organizations! The cycle tour
costs a minimum $25 donation per rider with all proceeds benefiting
Arlingtonians for a Clean Environment and Habitat for Humanity of
Northern Virginia. Riders will meet at the Arlington Oaks Condominium,
one of the stops on the tour itself, for registration, check-in, and
viewing of the first green garden stops. There will be two comprehensive
routes to choose from – each include green homes, green gardens, and
homes for sale that are conducive to commuting to work by bike. Riders
can register in advance online.
