Hi. We want to restore a house built in 1887 so we can learn how sustainability was a lifestyle and not a goal.  See more

BENEFITING: MONTALVO HOUSE

EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2010

THE STORY:

The Montalvo family raised nine children in a two room house. Their property held a hand built rock water well that supplied water to not only their own family but also the entire local community. Their property was filled with pecan trees, fruit trees and edible plants. This was a family that knew that sustainability was a lifestyle and not a goal. We want to restore the property using rainwater harvesting, edible landscaping, cost-effective solar power and wind energy. Our first step is to build one section of fence that will also serve as a rainwater holding tank. Won't you help us?
