Courtyard Tour

We offer regular guided tours of the Courtyard Project led by Bright Green Futures.

The tour includes a walk around the site and covers all aspects of the co-housing project, with plenty of time to ask questions and seek advice for your personal project or vision and to find out about Bright Green Futures’ projects. The tour is followed by a chance to sit down afterwards for further discussion with us. Courtyard tours last 1.5 hours. During the tour you will also get the opportunity to speak to some of the Courtyard residents who are always excited to share their experience.
