Environmental Features House Tours
Holden Street has undertaken a long term project to improve its environmental performance and comfort for visitors. Tours focusing on the “Environmental Features” of the House will be held on 3rd Monday of the month at 12.15pm. Come and discover what we have done and why. See if there are changes you can make in your own home. Even if you are renting, there are still things you can do.
Dates: 18 Feb, 18 Mar, 15 Apr, 13 May, 17 Jun
In August we were lucky to be “Blitzed”. More than 40 people braved very wet and unpredictable weather to help make our permaculture garden plan a reality.
Looking for Gardeners
Our new garden beds need people happy to potter, monitor, nurture and even eat the produce.

Saturday 07 July 2012, 1:00pm – 3:30pm: Raingarden installation
Thanks to Melbourne Water and the City of Yarra we will be having a raingarden installed in our front garden. Raingardens help filter storm water and keep our rivers and creeks healthy. Melbourne Water has set a target of 10000 raingardens across Melbourne. We are looking forward to having one at the House so we can show our neighbours how they work.

Come along and help get our permaculture design off paper and into the garden. All assistance welcome.
Saturday 08 September 2012: Sustainable House Day
Come for a tour of our eco demonstration house, learn about grafting fruit trees and stay for our “Suitcase Sale.” A suitcase sale is like a car boot sale but it’s eco friendly and requires less space. Put the things you want to sell in a suitcase and come along.
