Home Living : November 18th 2008
HLC - HOME LIVING: CENTRAL, Tuesday, November 18, 2008 5 Back-to-basics life » ADVERTISING FEATURE The developing Illabunda eco-village at Winston Hills is demonstrating you can produce your own healthy organic food. From the no-dig garden, created during an open day last year, there have been harvests of strawberries, passionfruit and gooseberries, as well as peppinos, chard, cauliflowers, corn, lettuce, tomatoes, peas, broccoli, beans, potatoes and pumpkins. Also abundant at Illabunda is the honey from the bee hives. Rod Cook, who is now 85 and has lived on the Illabunda property and tended the bees for 54 years, is now passing his skills on to the future residents. It is a haven in Sydney, says prospective resident Jodie Goldney-Gibb. ''We love coming here and the kids love it too, especially when the mulberries are in season,'' she says. And the children aren't the only ones enjoying produce from the mulberry trees. The Illabunda open day is on Sunday, November 23, and in keeping with the theme of the abundance of nature, there will be a presentation on how to make mud bricks and build a house from natural materials by Ray Trappel, an architect and builder specialising in building with natural earth materials. The vision for Illabunda is for a more natural, healthy lifestyle and now, with the development application approved, the eco-village is close to a reality.

HOMELIVING » ADVERTISING FEATURE Brick benefits When Yasir and Esta Georgees were building their Sydney home they knew it had to be full brick. Having lived in a full-brick home before, they were well aware of the advantages a solid-brick home offers. ''It's cool in summer and even though the house has airconditioning it is very rarely used. ''In winter the home also needs very little heating when it is cold outside,'' Mr Georgees says. ''The house is strong and solid which gives a good feeling of security. In my opinion, it is also a good investment.'' The Georgees' home is full brick on all three floors including the basement level. Details: Visit www.fullbrick.com.au or call 1800 670 235.
