Chris Southall: Urban Self Reliance

Our speaker this month is Chris Southall, who is just the man to inspire us get going on the eco-DIY during the summer.

You can see him interviewed by BBC's Working Lunch here

In just a few years, with a minimal budget and using mainly recycled materials and DIY, Chris has transformed a very ordinary house in Clacton on Sea into an inspiring, comfortable and economical eco-home.
They grow much of their own food in a garden based on permaculture principles, while insulation, solar panels and a wood burning stove have allowed them to reduce their energy consumption by 76%.   Chris reckons their commitment to eco-living saves them £15,000 pa

We'll probably go to the Maypole pub afterwards
