In the current climate we live in, sustainability is an important part for the survival of our planet. Learning all you can is the key. Knowledge is power, and this Sustainable Home Design, Building and Renovation event on Monday 4 March 2019 from 7-8.30pm at Cooinda Neighbourhood Centre, 245 Sturt Rd, Sturt is the perfect opportunity to hear from a panel of experts in three short presentations, and get a little Q&A time in. If this FREE event catches your interest, you need to REGISTER to attend.
This event is part of the City of Marion's Common Thread FREE Program of monthly sustainable living workshops. If you'd like to build a sustainable home or renovate your home to make it more environmentally friendly, this is the event to be at.
Ken Long from the Adelaide Sustainable Building Network will introduce you to key sustainable building and design principles for designing or building your home. He's extremely passionate about creating sustainable built environments and is a sustainability consultant backed up by a swag of qualifications behind the title.
You'll learn about sustainable design and building principles for residential homes and hear from a local who has applied these principles to his own home.
You'll also hear a local case study from Dylan Stone, a Marion resident who recently finished building his sustainable straw bale home in Warradale. He will introduce you to the passive solar and environmentally friendly features of his house and discuss how he chose the design and went about building his home. He'll give you his top tips for DIY sustainable building.
Finally there will be a short overview of Council's development application process and planning requirements that apply to sustainable homes. This is an opportunity to learn how to navigate the process and ask questions of a Council planner.
A FREE workshop that can't be missed that benefits you and mother earth!
