Visit to Bolivar
There was a good response to last month’s call for expressions of interest in a tour of the Bolivar Sewage Treatment Plant. We’ll organise this for the cooler weather, probably May and put out a call then so don’t respond yet. Note this will be for currently financial ATA members only. If demand exceeds the maximum 30 places, we’ll organise a second tour.
Building with Hempcrete workshop, 23-24 April for designers, builders and owners. Includes design, codes and hands on training in building with hemp masonry and hemp lime. Click here for further details and registration.
The Adelaide Sustainable Building Network will host a talk by the workshop organiser in April and details are being finalised. Check the ASBN Facebook page here for details.
ATA meetings put people with questions in touch with people who might have answers. The Q&A session is an open discussion about sustainability topics.
Meetings are open to ATA members and non-members. They aim to be informative and interactive in helping people to learn about living and building sustainability. We look forward to seeing you.
