Saturday Tours – Sustainable Living

Intrigued by what an earth-sheltered home might look, or feel like, inside? Or wanting an overview of what it is to live sustainably?

Book tickets here.

Join one of our small group tours, which are led by a resident of the project on six Saturdays a year to give you a personal view on what it’s like to live in this sustainable co-housing project.

This tour includes a guided walk around the site to learn about our food, water and renewable energy systems, a tour of one of the homes, and a presentation on the challenges faced during the build, and subsequent development, of the project.

It is ideal for

  • People seeking a more sustainable personal lifestyle
  • Undergraduate students
  • Environmental and energy campaigners
  • Other organisations with an interest in environmental issues, including climate change mitigation and adaptation

If you have a large group please contact us about a group tour.

If you wish to discuss your self-build, renewable energy or water systems project in  detail please consider a bespoke visit to ensure we can answer your questions in full.

“I and my three friends learned a great deal and we shall remember it always. You are patently achieving your aim to act as a catalyst for change, and we wish you even greater success in the future.”  “Visited Hockerton eco housing project. Hugely relieved to find they are ordinary people with jobs, cars, dogs, tellys etc. No hint of political axe-grinding or religion, just practical solutions and very nice houses.”
