Good weather teamed up with an amazing crew to deliver a fabulous Sustainable House Day Nillumbik Trail on Sunday.
With around 50 tours of 10 different houses to choose from, the 400 participants were treated to great insights about the sustainability journeys of some of Nillumbik's homeowners. With a range of different approaches to sustainable building and retrofitting of 70s and 80s homes, there was ample opportunity to ask about all aspects of home energy efficiency and sustainable design - and how it really works in practice!
This day was the culmination of contributions from an enormous range of individuals and organisations. Our heartfelt thanks to:
