- This Global Green house is among the energy-efficient homes on the Le Vert Tour.
The Young Leadership Council (YLC) of New Orleans hosts its second annual Le Vert Tour presented by Joule Energy from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29. The free, self-guided tour showcases seven energy-efficient homes, including Global Green's Holy Cross home, Brad Pitt's Make It Right Foundation, a NOLA Wise house and URBANbuild properties.
Tour participants will learn how homeowners are making their homes eco-friendly and how to do the same with their own residences.
"We're thrilled to see Le Vert Tour in its second year," said YLC President Alyssa Wenck. "It's great to see a young project like this grow into an annual citywide event that the public can look forward to and one that promotes a greener way of life."
Registration opens at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 29 at the YLC (1840 Euterpe St., 504-585-1500; www.ylcnola.org). — Angela Hernandez
