We recently attended and participated in the ATA & Marrickville Councils Speed Date a Sustainable Designer.
The event was a lot of fun and full of enthusiastic people ready to take charge on improving their homes.
As a starting point it is useful to do your home work on what sustainable building techniques and materials and can do for you and what other projects are out there that you like or have interest in.
Some helpful links as a starting point are:
