Build Grow Live in Torquay

was held on Sunday 25 October 10am – 5.00pm

 (our new take on Sustainable House Day in 2015)


A HUGE THANK YOU to all attendees, site owners, volunteers, stall holders, presenters, sponsors and raffle donors for making Build Grow Live a great day!

The open homes proved very popular with well over 200 visits across the 5 sites, where aspiring home builders were able to pick up great tips from the owners, builders and other experts. 

Danawa Garden looked amazing with garden beds decked out with flags and folk perusing the stalls, listening to our fabulous presenters and wonderful music whilst enjoying the delicious treats on offer.

We look forward to a rockin’ 2016 BGL in the future and welcome anyone inspired by the theme to join us in planning the next one. Contact us now to be involved


‘Build Grow Live in Torquay builds on the past success of Sustainable House Day where the general public is able to view and access practical information on how to live ‘greener’ by visiting private homes where owners shared tips home and information on living more sustainably.
