Book talk, Gleebooks, Dulwich Hill Saturday 17 September

At 3 pm, Saturday 17 September I’ll be talking about my sustainable house in Chippendale at Gleebooks, Dulwich Hill.

Hear what worked and didn’t over the last 15 years.

How has the house kept over 1.5 million litres of sewage on site?

How are the solar panels going?

How can four people live in the house for energy and water bills less than $300 a year?

Booking details:

See you there,

  1. Hi Michael. Please let me know if you hold a similar event in the near future. I’m impressed at such an initiative being taken locally here in Dulwich Hill (and also Marrickville council’s initiative to turn road island space into community vegetable gardens). I got interested in This sort of thing through reading Sydney Baggs’ “Australian Earth-Covered Building” book some years back, about earth bermed housing.
