Just turn up
If you are wondering where to start, but don’t know how, but know you want to improve your home, not only to save money but because it’s important to you, come to Henry House as they have it all covered.
Whether it be water or energy efficiency, or urban bee hive management, you really must make a visit here.
Water is needed for everything here, both for business and personal use, as is energy. The relationship created by these, through Karen’s & Rolf’s innovative DIY ways of reducing their consumption, in turn positively impacts something else, such as saving money, water recycling, not using mains water, generating income and energy from their solar panels.
The bee hive is brand new, and a wild local swarm is due to arrive in March. Just like us, bees need water, so the hive is situated right next to the pond, which is perfectly safe for all to get a good view of the garden’s increasing diversity of dragonfly, damsel flies, frogs and toads.
A great synergy has been created by Karen’s long-term passion for ecology and her engineering background. Henry House is a perfect learning environment for parents and children, which can be easily replicated.
And to top it off Rosa, Karen’s 7-year-old granddaughter will be on site on Saturday to answer your questions as well as help you have fun with bumble bee dress up!
