Please note: in the 2012 Council Plan and Budget, the funding allocation for development of the planned Eco-living Centre was postponed until 2016/17.
The council-owned house at 25 Inglesby Road, Camberwell will be remodelled to become the Boroondara Eco-living Centre.
This centre will demonstrate sustainable design principles and technologies and support sustainable living behaviours in our community. The centre will deliver Council's Living for our Future program and host a range of activities such as guided tours, informative/interactive displays, school visits, workshops and presentations.
You will be able to visit the centre to watch solar hot water and greywater systems in action, see into walls and floors to learn about building materials, participate in vegetable and fruit-growing and lots more!
The centre will also provide a meeting space for community and environment groups.
Our vision for the centre is that it becomes a thriving hub of learning and change, a valued resource offering practical solutions that make it easier for communities to live more sustainably.
