GREEN HOME TOUR ... The Barron Park Green Team will host a free, self-guided Green Tour 2010 on Sunday, June 27, from 1 to 5 p.m. Energy-efficient systems — including photovoltaic panels, solar hot water, electric cars — and sustainable, organic and drought-tolerant gardens in 12 homes will be on tour. Barron Park master gardeners will host four talks (at 2 p.m., 3 p.m. and 4 p.m.) along the way on how to compost, grow vegetable gardens and native plants and raise chickens. A map of the tour homes will be available at Bol Park (Laguna at Matadero avenues) as will vendor and nonprofit booths with information on how to green homes. Information: www.bpaonline.org/GreenTeam/greentour-2010-announcement.html.
