Saving Power In Your Home (Ecoburbia Mini Series – Session 4)

March 28, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Do you want to have a more sustainable house, without having to move or build a new one?

Do you want to have a more sustainable house, without having to move or build a new one?

In this interactive workshop you will learn about the principles of basic solar passive design and how you can use those principles to save gas and electricity in your home. Low or no cost actions will be covered in depth.

This workshop will show you how to save the environment and money at home.

This workshop was part of a mini series including:

Shani Graham and her partner Tim are from Ecoburbia, a business aimed creating more sustainable and resilient communities. Their work ranges from presenting workshops on good solar house design at local councils, to inspiring corporate executives to introduce a worm farm to the office kitchen. They are aware that developing community is essential to this work, and so make sure there is lots of interaction, fun and play in whatever they are doing.

Shani and Tim’s business Ecoburbia won a Fremantle Chamber of Commerce award in 2011, and a West Australian Best Small Business Environmental award the same year. Shani was the Fremantle Citizen of the Year in 2011. The next year they were honoured to win the Australia wide Banksia Award for Excellence in Small Business.

Discovering that awards made very little difference to her life, Shani stopped applying for them and is content milking goats, talking to her neighbours and tending to her garden.

Piney Lakes Environmental Education Centre is accessed via the westbound lanes on Leach Hwy.
