Lewisham House is featured today in the Sydney Morning Herald

Posted on Updated on

The news is that Sydney Water has decided that it doesn’t need to save any more water, and that programs for schools, businesses and schools can be shut down. It’s an extraordinary decision, made with the full knowledge that Sydney will only be getting drier in coming years.

Our house was the featured “human interest” angle for the story, and a video person came around yesterday to film me watering the garden and talking about why we put in our water tanks. All good fun!

You can see the video here, including shots of our water tanks in full operation during a brief thunderstorm:

Water wise, dollar dumb

Update: I’ve just discovered that we’re on page 2 of the printed newspaper, and there’s also a second article online that includes more about the house:

Dam the expense: rebate gone but tanks for the memories

    Wow, what a great piece of footage of you guys at Lewisham house, and what can be done on a small plot. Well done. Imagine if everyone started to grow their own vegetables and herbs in their small, back garden plots. What a difference this would make. Simple ways to transform how we live on this planet, but so, so important. Thank you James, for posting your Lewisham house blog. I’ve been following it now for a couple of years, and I always find something of use, some great ideas. Keep on keeping on! 🙂 🙂
