Volunteers for Burnley Neighbourhood House

From the Yarra News publication:

Burnley Neighbourhood Centre in Richmond is offering free training in household energy and water conservation to people who volunteer to help turn the centre into an EcoLiving demonstration site.

The training is available as part of the Greener Houses Growing Greener Neighbourhoods project running in five neighbourhood houses in Melbourne’s northern suburbs.

The five neighbourhood houses will be developed into environmental showcases. Burnley Neighbourhood Centre will be retrofitted with water and energy saving fittings and other environmental appliances to create a display building for residents wanting to learn how to make their own homes more environmentally friendly.

To help with the makeover, the Centre is looking for volunteers who would like to help create an environmental showcase and learn skills to implement in their own home. Training will be provided by experts from Moreland Energy Foundation.

People interested in volunteering are encouraged to contact Burnley Neighbourhood Centre on 9428 9901 or email burnleync@yarranet.net.au.
