Sustainable Town

HouseAroundTheCornerIn Heyfield it was the Community Resource Centre who developed and  introduced the unique flag program which saw businesses and homes assessed for their sustainability. Over 380 homes were assessed and consequently made changes to their homes and businesses making a more sustainable environment.

These changes started off as small changes but as our community came to see the benefit of the changes they made more and more changes. Solar hot water, solar panels, mulch, insulation, water tanks and many more changes took place.

This unique program was featured in the “House Around the Corner” and our episode can to be seen here as a youtube clip:
