Seeking homes to participate on the day
For the first time, City of Boroondara is taking part in the national Sustainable House Day, held on Sunday, 9 September from 10am to 4pm.
Sustainable House Day began in 2001 as an initiative of the Australian Solar Energy Society (AuSES) and it has become the only national event of its kind. In 2011 over 200 people opened their homes and gardens to over 40,000 people.
This day provides a unique opportunity for people to open their doors and showcase to others in their local community the sustainable design initiatives and sustainable living practices that they've incorporated in their home and/or garden.
It gives people the chance to get a real-life look inside houses that have been designed, built or fitted out with sustainability in mind and talk to owners, receiving unbiased advice.
The event organisers are now seeking suitable homes and gardens that demonstrate good passive design principles, showcase energy and water efficiency, have sustainability features like renewable energy supply, sustainable gardens, aquaponics systems and permaculture gardens.
If you have incorporated any of these sustainable designs into your home and/or garden, and would love to share your experience with others, then jump on board this year’s Sustainable House Day and register your interest to participate at the Sustainable House Day website.
