Hockerton Housing Project Tours

Intrigued what an earth sheltered house looks and feels like inside?  What an overview of what is like to live sustainably?

The residents of the five houses at Hockerton Housing Project live without heating in their homes, all their energy requirements are generated from renewable energies, they manage their own water systems and waste and grow about 70% of their own food. The environment they live in is a community managed by the five families. Six Saturday’s a year the families open their community to the general public. One of the residents guides you on a tour of the community including the land, water systems, food production, renewable systems and inside one of the homes.

Join one of our small group tours, which is led by a resident from the project to give you a personal view on what it is like to live in this 20 year old housing project..

The tour includes a guided walk around the site to learn about food, water, renewable energy systems, a tour of one of the homes, and a presentation on challenges faced during the build and subsequent development of the project.
