Leading Permaculturist Rosemary Morrow will open her doors to the public this coming Sunday 13th September for the highly awaited annual Sustainable House Day. The day is an opportunity to meet with Green Assessors and view the many ways that creative individuals have tackled water and energy efficiency and capture, and food production.
Located in Katoomba in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney, part of an Australian World Heritage Listed area, Rosemary has tackled the issues of protecting biodiversity and the bushland as well as her own personal food production. She has set out to retrofit a small brick veneer house using mainly low cost locally sourced and recycled materials to show that anyone can convert their "box" into a beautiful and comfortable home without a large income. Her journey has been documented in a small booklet and DVD called "A Good Home Forever". For more information visit The Blue Mountains Permaculture Insititute site.
