Three Mullum homes open for Sustainable House Day

THREE of Mullumbimby's most sustainable homes will be opening their doors to the public on Sunday, September 13, for Sustainable House Day 2015.

Sustainable House Day is a national event that allows the public to see and learn from the best environmental homes across Australia.

Over on King Street, Bec Talbot will be sharing how their street has developed a culture of verge planting, car-pooling and child minding.

Their edible garden showcases design for kids with lots to nibble, chooks to cuddle and a passion fruit cubby house. 

Also opening in Mullumbimby are Sharon Gibson's award winning permaculture demonstration site on Stuart Street and Andrew Wadsworth's 'Hemp House' at Tallowoods.

Sustainability guru and author of 'Sustainable House' book, Michael Mobbs will be speaking at the King St House from 11-12pm and the Stuart St house from 1-2pm.

These houses will join more than 150 homeowners nationwide in opening their homes to the community to pass on tips and advice on topics such as renewable energy, permaculture, sustainable building practices and more. 

The homes will be open to the general public from 10am to 4pm on Sunday, 13 September 2015.

More info about the Open Homes Program on September 13, and the Sustainable House Expo on September 19 is available at www.sevenonsibley.com/shd2015/.
