A joint workshop for Homeowners by Hope Valley Climate Action Energy group and Marches Energy Agency’s Home Energy Advice Team pilot project.

This workshop will cover the natural breathable insulation and building materials for houses with an older construction, such as most of the houses in the Hope Valley.  It will include their pros and cons, and practical details of how to install and fix them.  Samples of the different materials will be available including a place where you can buy them.

This workshop will be useful both for people wanting to learn more before starting their insulation work and for DIYers planning to do the insulation work themselves.
