Description

Food, resilience and retrofitting our suburbs – with David Holmgren

As part of Harvest Time, we are pleased to announce an exciting event brought to you by Local Food Connect, in collaboration with Banyule City Council and Nillumbik Shire Council.

David Holmgren will present his highly engaging multi-media talk ‘Aussie Street’, a speculative eco-narrative, seen through the microcosm of four adjacent houses. His soon-to-be-launched book, RetroSuburbia: the downshifter’s guide to a resilient future, shows how Australians can downshift and retrofit their homes, gardens, communities and, above all, themselves to be more self-organised, sustainable and resilient into an uncertain future. It promises a challenging but exciting mix of satisfying work, a more meaningful way of living and hope for the next generation.

David Holmgren is best known as the co-originator of the permaculture concept following the publication of "Permaculture One" in 1978. David is globally recognised as a leading ecological thinker, teacher, respected writer and thought-provoking speaker promoting permaculture lifestyle as a realistic, attractive and powerful alternative to dependent consumerism.

David's talk will be followed by a discussion, networking and nibbles.

For more information visit the RetroSuburbia website, https://www.retrosuburbia.com/

It provides wonderful insight into the book and David’s work including book trailer, case studies, essays

and other related resources.
