Eco Organic Sustainability at Hereweka - 15th Apr 2014

NZ made sofa covered with organic wool fabric Hereweka Garden Retreat prides it self as being the only true Eco accommodation on the Otago Peninsula.
We built the Retreat with sustainability and organic principles always at the forefront of all our decision making.
Wood used to build the Retreat has not been treated with chemicals.
We had to fight hard for this when building the decks. We did not want to use tanalised wood nor non -sustainable imported hardwoods.
We needed to convince the Dunedin City Council to let us use heart wood macracarpa. After some discussions they eventually agreed.
There are many other features that make this a real Eco Retreat including solar hot water, a composting flush toilet, natural wool insulation in walls and ceilings and an organic vegetable garden.
Even the New Zealand made sofa is covered with organic undyed woolen fabric which I sourced when at a conference in Sydney.
