Council's 'Living for the Future' Home Expo was launched in 2013 as a free, family-friendly event offering a one-stop-shop of stalls and practical workshops to help people embrace sustainable living principles and find out more about smart housing designs and renovations.

Home Expo 2016

Smart lifestyles and environmentally-friendly living will be the focus of Tweed’s ‘Home Expo – Living for the Future’ event.

On Saturday 3 September 2016 from 9am – 2pm, Seagulls Club, Gollan Drive, Tweed Heads West will play host to a one-stop-shop of local suppliers and inspirers with ideas and solutions for more sustainable living in the Tweed.

The expo aims to help people:
  • save energy costs
  • be water efficient
  • reuse resources and reduce waste
  • enhance the local environment
  • cut greenhouse gas emissions
  • move towards food and energy self-sufficiency
There will also be prizes and giveaways, great local coffee and food, talks and workshops from local experts and activities for the kids.
