This year's Build It Green Tour of Homes in Portland is happening Saturday, September 20. The tour runs 11 AM to 5 PM, and you can visit as many of the 20 homes as you can...

The tour is followed by an information fair from 3:30 to 7:30 at ecohaus in Portland. Tickets, which are available online, are $15 for adults; $10 for students and seniors; and $10 if you will use a bicycle or bus to get around.

We went last year and had a great time—it's a great way to get inspiration for your own home and meet a few new friends. (And if you're looking for a quick weekend away from home, Portland is the perfect green escape.)
