about the other equation of what we consume. Our food source does not derive from the supermarket, and end in the rubbish truck that comes past our houses....this 21min documentary enlightens us and our children about how our consumption patterns are affecting our environment....we had an enjoyable time watching this documentary, and discussing with our children about what we can do to make a difference. This morning whilst walking to school, my eight year old picked up two pieces of rubbish from the sidewalk and put it in a rubbish bin nearby.
Open house (date TBD) - Solar Sellow
We are opening to the public, a house built to our 9 star design Solar Sellow on a regular basis. This house is constructed with reverse brick veneer internally on both upper and ground floor, phase-change materials in the ceiling and walls upstairs, as well as an earth tube cooling system which utilises air that has been cooled/ heated under ground to supplement the house's heating and cooling requirement. The address would be given out when you register your details by emailing your name, contact phone no. and email address to firstname.lastname@example.org. We are likely to have more open days in the future, keep a look out , or ask if you want to be notified of future open days.
