Greener Houses Update – July 2010

The Greener Houses volunteers have developed a wish list of improvements for our centre, in consultation with the centre committee and staff. The wishlist has ideas about how to make the centre more comfortable, cut energy and water use, and reduce the centre’s carbon footprint. Ideas include:

  • filling cracks and gaps
  • insulating walls and ceiling
  • installing window coverings
  • improving ventilation
  • improving light
  • investigating better heating and cooling systems.

Yarra City Council will be doing work around our centre to grant some of our wishes and the Greener Houses group will price some of the bigger tasks and investigate funding options. Once the priority works are done, we’ll focus on how to use the centre to showcase what everyone in the area can do at their place to be a Greener House.
