Event description

Description

David Holmgren, permaculture visionary and story teller takes us back through the decades of our lived history in

the streets where the quarter acre hosted the Aussie post war dream, through the decades of rising affluence and

additions, aging and infill, permaculture inspired retrofit and on, through a gritty but inspiring and realistic

transformation in the Great Depression of the 2020s.

Aussie St is a permaculture soap opera, made real by masterful story telling that sounds a warning and clarion call

for direct action on the home front. The presentation is also a window into the rich palette of design solutions and

tips that Holmgren has explored in in his latest opus, Retrosuburbia; the Downshifters Guide to a Resilient Future.


Costa Georgiadis from the foreword to Retrosuburbia:

"This book is a dance, a tango between our habits and our actions, our visions and our intentions. RetroSuburbia

boldly renovates what we know as our safety net and replaces it with an action plan; planning for the worst and

hoping for the best. The answers are in the everyday. Let the transformation and retrofit begin."
