Greenhouse by Joost


Imagine a house that grows its own food. That’s the vision of environmental campaigner Joost Bakker, who takes everyone on the journey of how he built a self-sustaining home in the centre of Melbourne. Bakker faces his fair share of challenges to finish the home. Delays, COVID shutdowns and blackouts all threaten the build. But ultimately the documentary, GREENHOUSE BY JOOST is an uplifting look at the teamwork and ingenuity behind a paradigm-shifting project that bursts with life.

This is a hybrid event and an opportunity for you to either watch the documentary and participate in a panel session in Lane Cove. Or you can watch in the comfort of your home through an online link.
