One hour  tours

Every few weeks, I host tours of my sustainable home and the Chippendale road garden. During these one-hour information sessions, I show you how to design systems for water, energy, recycled water and sewage and provide details about materials and costs. Up to 30 people can come on a tour. Bookings are essential - see below for how to book and pay.

If you’d like to discuss your own project and get design, product and costing suggestions, let me know in advance by email of what your needs are. And if you’d like to get your hands on the equipment needed for the water, recycled water and other systems, email me in advance and we’ll work that into your tour. Or, search my blog for products, suppliers, data and short videos with 'how to' information.

I'd love to work with you on your project, particularly to help you design, specify and choose water, energy, food and materials; my services and products are listed here.

Free tours for my local neighbours who are residents or work in Chippendale; just email me to confirm a place(s).

The tour schedule is as follows:

  • Saturday 19 May 2018          10.30 - 11.30 pm


Tour fee     $25 per person (children up to teenagers 18yo, free).
Please click here to book your place in the tours as space is limited. If you book please add my email (below) to your contacts so that confirmation emails do not go to your spam folder.


Two hour experiential tours

To get the feel of what it's like to live in a sustainable house and to harvest from road gardens there is a 2 hour tour option where I show you how easy and ordinary - and fun - it is to live in and to use the appliances; information and bookings are here.


Private tours (minimum fee $50, maximum 30 people) can be arranged by contacting me at
