Hockerton Housing Project is a community of sustainable homes. It incorporates a business and a self-sufficient co-housing development. Some times houses come up for sale: How to join.

The business, not-for-profit co-operative hosts tours and courses, and provides consultancy services to help others deliver sustainability in their home, community or workplace.

Our earth-sheltered sustainable homes are built with high thermal mass and very high levels of insulation which amazingly eliminates the need for whole house heating systems. Residents of the five houses generate their own clean electrical energy to meet their remaining energy needs. We also grow most of their own food, harvest and treat our own water and recycle waste materials. Hopefully an inspiring example on the path to a zero carbon world.

Be the change with us!
