Eco Dreamers Seminar – May 12

“Eco Dreamers” seminar

10-star Eco Homes and Eco Entrepreneurs:
The Cape (Victoria) comes to Narara.

Meet Brendan Condon, Project Director, The Cape (Cape Patterson Ecovillage).

“It’s not enough for an ecovillage to go it alone”

Saturday May 12 2018, 3-5 pm at the Narara Ecovillage.

Brendan Condon, Project Director of “The Cape” (formerly the Cape Patterson Ecovillage) in Victoria, will visit Narara to present the story of The Cape’s 10 year development, including:

  • A project that breaks new ground in affordable, replicable, sustainable home building
  • The mission to create and promote new standards in sustainable building design and development, as a legacy for our children
  • The story: The Cape, a 220 home, zero-carbon eco-development
  • Designing and building 9 and 10 star homes

 

  • Why the architectural plans for their high energy rated homes are free
  • The offering of pre-approved and costed house packages
  • The planning challenges of being an eco-developer
  • The Community Garden that captures up to 3 million litres of rainwater and will provide  $140,000 of produce per annum.

Hear from the Narara Ecovillage drivers, Lyndall Parris and John Talbott (below), how The Cape project compares to the Narara Ecovillage’s community-driven project.

 

Join in identifying the way forward for more sustainable development in Australia.

As Brendan says: “It’s not enough for an ecovillage to go it alone. We won’t make a difference unless we work together.”
