Event description

Description

We are pleased to announce an exciting author event, ‘Aussie Street’ featuring David Holmgren into the 2018 City of Yarra Library Talks calendar.

On May 12, we will welcome David to Bargoonga Nganjin library to present his highly engaging multi-media talk ‘Aussie Street’, a speculative eco-narrative, seen through the microcosm of four adjacent houses. The event coincides with his recently launched book, RetroSurburbia: the downshifter’s guide to a resilient future.

RetroSurburbia 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,” says Holmgren.

Visit RetroSuburbia website, www.retrosuburbia.com for book details.
