Hockerton Housing Trip

Short Description

 

Further Information

We are planning a trip to Hockerton Housing Project which is a community of Sustainable Homes...

The tour typically includes:
- Site tour from one of the project members who live here - highlighting:
what its like to live in the houses, renewable energy systems (wind &
solar), autonomous water systems (rainwater collection/treatment, wastewater
treatment via reed bed), self-sufficiency (food), waste management (e.g.
composting).
- Walk through one of the project member's homes, highlighting key
environmental features, how the home is designed to only use 10% of a
typical UK home, and how individuals can take their own positive actions to
reduce energy.
- Small exhibition in our sustainable community building and a chance to
experience using a compost toilet.
- Short slide presentation showing how homes were built, why we choose
certain materials and how well they perform.

It would cost around £10 each and will take place on Saturday 16th of February 2019 :)
