April 29th Green Fair in Madison to Showcase Borough's Newest Passive Solar House

On April 13th, local architect Chris Kellogg met with 25 members of Madison's Green Team and explained the details behind his future home, which will be Madison's newest passive solar house. A scale model will be on display at Madison's first ever Green Fair, which is scheduled for Thursday, April 29th 3:30 pm - 7:30 pm in front of the Museum of Early Trades and Crafts on the corner of Main Street and Green Village Road. The house has many innovative, environmentally friendly building techniques.

Pictured here are (from L to R), CK Khanna owner of Green Energy Innovations, Council Member Astri Baillie, Green Team Chair Betsy Uhlman, and Kellogg.

Tours of the house will also be available during the Green Fair. The house is currently under construction on Walnut Street, and is noticeable because of the unique way it is sited on the lot. "People may not realize it", said owner/architect Chris Kellogg "but the Luke Miller house is positioned similarly to our house on Walnut, and for the same reason, to take full advantage of the warmth and light offered by the sun. Some of the techniques used in our house are new and innovative, but others have been around for centuries."

Over 40 exhibitors will be at the Green Fair including a geothermal display from Drew University, a pedal powered ice cream making machine from Whole Foods, recycled art projects for the kids compliments of the Museum, free product giveways, locally handcrafted items, and displays and information from various organizations including the Shade Tree Management Board, Environmental Commission, Garden Club, Open Space Advisory Committee, TransOptions and the MHS Environmental Club. PC Problems will host an electronic recycling pickup booth, and Madison Honda will have vehicles on display.
