The EarthWays Home, a three-story Victorian residence built in 1885 at 3617 Grandel Square, was renovated in 1994 to showcase practical demonstrations of energy efficient systems, recycled products and waste reduction practices. Today this handsome educational facility houses EarthWays Center, a division of the Missouri Botanical Garden.
Systems and products in the EarthWays Home offer visitors a springboard to rethink product design and building operations to achieve affordable resource efficiency. Visitors will experience hands-on applications of sustainable lifestyle choices. Most features of the EarthWays Home are readily available for use in general construction and renovation.
