Jeff & Loris admiring the frog pond at Granity

 

Granity is the property developed by Jeff and Loris Wilmot at 675 Landscape Road, Tallarook. Loris and Jeff have recently sold this property with a plan to move into Seymour into an energy smart renovation+addition.

Granity is a beautiful property of native and permaculture gardens, a rammed earth house and here is a chance for BEAM members to visit and appreciate Jeff and Loris’s achievement over the past 30 years, before they shift.

Combined with the Granity event is a trip to the Trawool Reservoir during that afternoon, to get a first hand look and description of the Feasible Pumped Hydro Energy Storage proposal, able to generate 6MW of power. It’s a big water battery, and its our local opportunity in a renewable energy storage concept that is much talked about nationally.
