Tour planned at Habitat house
This month’s free Second Saturday educational workshop set from 1-3 p.m. Saturday will answer the question: what does a new home look while it is being built?
Participants also will learn about how the local Greater Fairfield Area Chapter of Habitat for Humanity chapter is planning for energy efficiency during the building of its 10th home.
The workshop will start at the Fairfield Public Library, with a presentation and question-and-answer session with John Loin, founding member of the local Habitat for Humanity chapter. Then, the group will tour the home currently being built.
The Second Saturdays workshops are part of Fairfield’s Hometown Rewards Program and a partnership between the city of Fairfield, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, Alliant Energy, KRUU 100.1FM, KMCD-Classic 96, Hy-Vee, COSC and the Fairfield Public Library.
The workshops provide practical information about how Fairfield residents can change their behaviors to save energy and money, conserve resources and reduce their carbon footprint. If the community meets the goals of the program, Alliant Energy will help fund the installation of solar panels on the Fairfield Public Library.
