Self Sufficient Off-Grid Open Home

Urban Tilba is a sustainable Sydney home which has state of the art solar with lifetime batteries, urban wind turbines, urban food systems, along with Permaculture principles. It truly is a home for the future. Situated on a 650sqm urban block in Seven Hills (Sydney, Australia) Mike Haydon and his family create their energy, harvest their water and grow their own fruits and vegetables.

This Australia Day Mike and his family will open up their home to the public to demonstrate to people that it can be done on a city block. They want to show the world how you too can make our cities more sustainable and create homes that work for our families.
