Join the highly experienced, skilled and passionate Passive Solar architect Matthew Turner at ORTO Farm!
Matthew will be joined by Frank Forster from EnviroShop Newstead.
EnviroShop Newstead are excellent at looking and analysing the “big picture” first, to see where solar, batteries, heat pumps, and electric vehicles can fit in. Their passion is energy efficiency and renewable energy.
This four-hour session is going to be packed with information with two highly experienced professionals. I will be here as host and to share my experiences, as together with my partner,I have retrofitted a small double brick 1950’s home in Melbourne based on passive solar principles and our current home is built using the light earth method (straw mixed with a slip of water and clay) and pressed into form work, also using passive solar principles.
This event offers the opportunity for you to “learn what you don’t know you don’t know”, or to consolidate your approach.
We will deliver a slide show, case studies and host a question-and-answer time slot.
There will be three of us here to answer questions and to share our experiences.
Tea (herbal and caffein rich) coffee and cakes provided.
This session will be hosted in our LightEarth Home.
Don’t hesitate to ask me, your host, questions prior to the date. Arrivederci cari amici, e grazie mille from mara
