State of Design Festival at Violet Town Saturday 24th July 11am – 4pm*

Join us and see what is happening design wise in a small country town.

For less than the cost of the local produce in your lunch, come along and learn more about the changes underway through a walking tour of retrofitted community buildings, solar houses, creek revegetation, community forest and Murrong permaculture development.

Stops along the walking tour include:

The energy efficiency retrofit of a 1970s Community Complex and the Early Childhood Centre in Violet Town demonstrates a great range of appropriate strategies to improve the way this building works.

HREP is a community powered restoration and design project for the Honeysuckle Creek and environs.

The Violet Town Community Forest, planted in 2006, is designed as an example of analogue forestry, to mimic the structure and functions of natural forest, while giving amenity, habitat, and future wood product yields.

Murrnong is designed as a permaculture community subdivision, with an established tree crop agriculture to provide for residents and local community.

Timing suits V-Line timetable from Melbourne.

Cost $10 adult – $5 child (under 16) Lunch included.
