The City of Orlando is entering an agreement with the Orlando Science Center to launch an exhibit about sustainable living, that will be featured in a tiny home.
The Tiny Green Home exhibit will be hosted in a habitable, one-story, “sustainability education center” that will function as a mobile educational tool to support sustainable living.
The City’s Green Works Department is co-funding the project with OUC in the amount of $100,000 to promote their ongoing collaborative programming and initiatives. An additional $15,000 will be provided by the City’s Facilities department, and an additional $50,000 from OUC to help with operating and maintenance costs over the first two years.
The workshop/classroom will be installed outside the new 4Rivers Smokehouse-run cafe at the southeastern corner of the building by the Tuskegee Airmen sculpture and will be staffed by the Center. It will also feature a visitor deck and a small garden. The tiny home will remain mobile though and will be making rounds at public events like Earth Day in the Park.
The project is expected to launch this October or November.
