“I have to say it was a fascinating day and exceeded my expectations. Thank you for your time, the tour and highly informed discussion. I particularly enjoyed the look round the newly constructed affordable housing which is a fantastic example of what can be achieved with thought and careful design. I think this would very relevant for our members who are exploring opportunities for new build property.”
“I thought Hockerton was a real inspiration. It has combined chic modern day living and sustainability, made a haven for wildlife, have total respect for the planet and have zero carbon footprint, totally awesome. The facilitators were both so enthusiastic and were more than happy to answer any questions that we had. I did learn a lot of information that I can take with me when I’m ready to build my own eco home”
