The environmental policies, including water and waste management, will be on display and aim to generate debate and seek ways to lift the environmental standards on housing estates of the future­. There will be small gardens to browse past, but they will be secondary to the walks around the estate aimed at providing a tangible appreciation of what environmentally responsible development means.

Tickets are R60 at the gate, and include­ tea and coffee, cakes and activities­
