If you’re thinking about improving your home’s energy, water or waste management efficiency, or saving some money on those, speaking to homeowners about their own experiences is a must. Even if you’d just like to see what others have done, we bet you’ll be inspired.

The homes will be open between 10am and 4pm, and entry is FREE!

No need to rsvp or book, just come along.  Addresses will be published at: www.sustainablehouseday.com.
