Henry House is unusual in being both a clinic and a home, with a hot (35C) hydrotherapy pool. Consequently it has three boilers and a high heat demand, which presents a lot of challenges.

Since taking over in 1997, Karen and her partner Rolf have striven to make the operation as sustainable as possible by introducing Rainwater harvesting and grey water recycling to limit water demand. At the same time, they have installed solar thermal to help supply the high shower demand and a substantial PV array to help offset electricity demand. Just about every initiative possible has been undertaken to recycle and minimise consumption, which has won Karen the Worthing and Adur Green Business of the Year award in both 2009 and 2012.

Being a keen organic gardener, Karen has worked on food production from the garden, which is also a beautiful wildlife haven in an urban setting.

During the event, there will be tours of the gardens, tea and cakes, and activities for children, including art, workshops and an eco competition. To celebrate the return of the stolen 6 foot inflatable Bananas there will be a repeat of the 'Bike for Bananas' Campaign - anyone who cycles to Henry House will receive a free Fair-Trade Banana!
