House Notes – Randwick Sustainable Classroom

The Classroom is a passive-solar building design that utilises the permaculture principle to produce ‘no waste’. The function of the classroom is to run school excursions and community sustainability workshops. The classroom can also be hired by the local community for educational purposes.

The Classroom will be on display as part of the Randwick Eco Living Expo.
