Virtual Sustainable Living Tours

Organised by Hockerton Housing Project
£0 - £8.50

The Hockerton Housing Project is a small community of five earth sheltered homes built in 1998 on the outskirts of Hockerton, Nottinghamshire, UK. They usually offers tours around their site, but these are currently cancelled until the beginning of June. Provisional dates for later this year are listed at the end.

In the meantime, they are offering live interactive Zoom tours of the project led by one of the residents covering their own home and the land.  You will be able to ask questions about growing your own food, renewable energies and more.

If you are interested, you can book a ticket here.

They are also running a weekday Zoom tour aimed at younger people about the challenges of climate change and living in a sustainable community.

You can book a ticket for this here.

They are also encouraging any students interested in sustainability to visit this video gallery. For children in years 5 and 6,  they suggest they look at The Green Pioneers Open University video.  The areas of GCSE and A level syllabus coverage is detailed in their education brochure

  • Saturday 6th June, 2pm - 5pm
  • Saturday 4th July, 2pm - 5pm
  • Saturday 12th September, 2pm - 5pm
