Radix Center Tour

June 14 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$5

ECOS will pay a visit to the amazing Radix Center facility near downtown Albany.  Located on a ½-acre former vacant lot, the Radix includes a 20×60 foot solar greenhouse, built in 2011.  Sustainable systems on display include: the bioshelter/greenhouse, heated by both solar and bio-thermal sources; a food forest and organic gardens; sustainably raised chickens, ducks, goats, and pigeons, as well as bees; aquatic plants and fish raised in a closed-loop nutrient-recycling system; food-waste composting using worms; and bioremediation processes of naturally occurring organisms to remediate contaminated soils. 

The mission of the center is to teach practical skills through hands-on workshops and tours to area school groups and interested citizens throughout the Northeast.  ECOS will collect $5 from each participant on site, and provide the center with a donation for hosting the tour.  The address of the Center is 153 Grand St., Albany, NY 12202.  Web: radixcenter.org.
