Sustainable House Day is coming up this weekend and to celebrate, Cessnock Library is hosting a fascinating and informative talk with Brian Woodward on Saturday 14 September from 10.30am-12noon.  

Brian Woodward is both an architect and academic, specialising in Sustainable Building and Energy Systems. He is also the creator and builder of ‘Earthways’, which is a 330 acre property in the Wollombi Valley.   

Brian and his wife Sally owner-built their two storey mud-brick home and support environment almost exclusively themselves. They have also provided their own energy from Solar voltaic panels, water from a Solar water heater, and treated their waste with a composting toilet: all self- designed and built.  

Library Services Co-ordinator, Rose-marie Walters, is encouraging anyone who is interested in making their house more sustainable to come along and learn something new.  

“Sustainability is one of the most popular speaking event topics at the library and we invite the community to come along and be both inspired and informed by Brian’s talk,” said Rose-marie.   

This event is free and refreshments are provided, but bookings are essential. Book your spot today via Eventbrite https://bit.ly/2MFgLRO, on the library website at libraries.cessnock.nsw.gov.au under 'Events & Bookings' or call Cessnock Library on 4993 4399.
