$10 entry (inc hot drinks – no eftpos, sorry)

The Greenspace – 60 Te Aroha Street, Hamilton East, Hamilton

Just in time for your spring building projects, Hamilton East’s unique meeting venue, The Greenspace, is offering a great evening seminar on eco-thrifty renovation for homeowners.

You’ll see two informative presentations from owners who remodelled their own character buildings – as well as get a “backstage” look at The Greenspace and find out why it has won awards for green building design and management. The two different projects on show will give you a lot of insight into the marriage between economical and ecological renovation, and prove that it’s not expensive to create your own green home.

From discussing different perspectives on “greening” your home, to sharing mistakes and pitfalls along the way, these projects offer a practical how-to guide for anyone who’d like to reduce their eco-footprint whilst still saving money. Ian Mayes (HCC’s Eco-Design Advisor) will also be on hand to answer questions about local support for environmentally-friendly design initiatives.
