Harvest Home Alumni Tour and Open House

The Catholic University of America is part of Team Capitol DC, a partnership that also includes American University and the George Washington University.

Together, students and faculty mentors from the three universities are harnessing the talents from each school’s premier programs to create a sustainable home that produces as much energy as it uses. Through harvesting natural resources, offering comforting design features, and providing an innovative biomedical atmosphere that contributes to rehabilitation of body and spirit, Harvest Home will help heal its ideal resident, a wounded American veteran.

The Harvest Home will be deconstructed later this summer and moved across the country for the Solar Decathlon competition, in which 20 teams will participate. The houses will be displayed between Oct. 3 and 13, 2013, in Irvine, Calif. Join us at CUA before Harvest Home leaves!

Saturday, July 27
11 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.
Solar Decathlon Site (Across from the John K. Mullen of Denver Memorial Library)

Join fellow alumni from CUA, AU, and GWU for an open house, and to learn about the first Washington, D.C., team to be selected for the Solar Decathlon. During the event, you will hear remarks from university leaders and the students who are making Harvest Home a reality.
