Event Description

We are just three weeks away from Sustainable House Day 2017 on Sunday, 17 September and our over 180 homeowners are busy getting ready to show you all the great things they have done to make their homes more comfortable to live in, cheaper to run and better for the environment. We hope you will be inspired!

The addresses for the open houses will be published on September 3, visible to everyone logged into the Sustainable House Day site. If you haven't already,register here. If you've registered for previous Sustainable House Days, you simply need to log in and start "favouriting" the houses you want to attend and your tour will mapped for you.

Across Australia there are a number of events happening in conjunction with Sustainable House Day, and we're adding more every week. Activities planned include sustainable garden tours, pre-day virtual tours and our sponsors RACV andSolar Dwellings are planning big on-day tours and events.

Sustainable House Day is about spreading the growth of sustainable living and providing you with the opportunity to see sustainability in action, which is why we are so excited by the variety and quality of the 180+ homes open this year.

Please help spread the word about SHD 2017 to make it a great event. You can help by liking the Sustainable House Day facebook page, sharing our event postand creating your own posts about houses you intend to visit to encourage your networks to attend. Twitter users, please follow us @sustainablehd and tag us using #SHD2017 and encourage followers to register, and you can find us@sustainablehouseday on instagram. And of course, tell everyone you know to visit to view houses and register to attend.

True, but it's a matter of working out which direction to go in.  
I might go and see the one at New Farm.
Hemp house at Mullumbimby looks interesting.

There's at least 10 houses to choose from within cooee of where I am at Dayboro Gayle and more over Qld. Check your postcode on the Find Houses search option. I see 13 within driving distance of Bridgeman Downs.

Unfortunately, no events in Queensland and not many houses.  Maybe more will come on board soon.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
