Sustainable House Education Day (SHeD) Sustainable Living Festival 2016
Sun. 28 February 2016, 10:00 am – 3:00 pm AEDT
The Mount Alexander Sustainability Group's (MASG) popular tour of environmentally progressive homes is back! Be inspired by what local residents of the Mount Alexander Shire have achieved and find out how they did it.
On Sunday 28 February 2016, 10am - 3pm, featured as part of the 2016 Sustainable Living Festival, local residents of the Mount Alexander Shire are opening their homes to the public to discuss some of the design and build choices they have made in their energy efficient and sustainably contructed homes.
'This year's SHeD features a 19th century mill-owner’s cottage, a deceptively conventional new build; and three homes sharing one quarter-acre block (one of which is the first accredited German-designed “PassivHaus” in Australia) a mid-century brick veneer makeover and their son’s annexe, done on a shoestring budget.'
On the Day:
Gather at Mount Alexander Sustainability Group (MASG) rear courtyard for morning tea from 9am.
At 10am the tour commences, with a lunch break at 12pm-1pm (Lunch not included in ticket price).
The second half of the tour will conclude with drinks and discussion with experts in sustainable design and energy efficiency, from 3pm - 4.30pm at MASG.
Tickets are available at a discounted price for members and also families, with morning tea, tour, concluding drinks and information pack included.
