Kyneton Transition Hub Upcoming Events
Sunday September 15th is shaping up to be a cracker Sustainable House Day in the Macedon Ranges.
Eight homes will be open in and close to the Macedon Ranges, with owners enthusiastic about sharing their experience at making their homes more comfortable, more energy efficient and cheaper to run.
There are two mudbrick houses, a strawbale house and a couple constructed from more familiar materials. There are custom builds and homes that are evolving over time, places “in town” and places on acreage, people who’ve been working on their homes for over 30 years and people who are relative rookies. What they all have is people who are passionate about making their homes work better and sharing their experiences to helping others start or continue their own improvements.
Twelve edible gardens will be open to the public on the weekend of 7 and 8 September 2019 as part of the Kyneton Daffodil and Arts Festival. Three schools are participating for the first time this year Taradale Primary School (Stephanie Alexander garden), Macedon Primary School (Middle Gully Reserve) and Our Lady of the Rosary Primary School Kyneton where students are learning about growing their own food and eating it too. It is a great opportunity for the school community to see how the children are transforming their gardens.
If you are in Melbourne on Wednesday with an hour to spare between 10.30 and 11.30, why not go along to hear a panel discussion on designing a sustainable future, as part of Melbourne Knowledge Week?
Free event - book tickets via the Melbourne Knowledge Week site.
