Thank you to all who attended WEC’s Farm & House Tour on Saturday, September 29, 2018 - including our awesome volunteers. 100% of the proceeds went to benefit WEC’s Environmental Scholarship Fund. This event featured eco-friendly and architecturally significant houses, plus Back 40 Farm.
Gunn Memorial Library - 5 Wykeham Road
A reception will be held at the Gunn Memorial Library from 1-5 p.m. the day of the tour. Learn more about the library's own unique eco-features and meet WEC directors!
The Gunn Memorial Library's historic 1908 building boasts a "Geo system" for its HVAC. Nine 450' deep wells provide heat from the ground in cold weather and receive excess heat from the 10,000 square foot building in the cooling seasons. The geothermal system supplies all of the air conditioning and there is an oil burner for backup heating if needed in the colder months.
