RetroSuburbia:  Action, Resilience & Future Visions

David Holmgren

Permaculture co-originator, David Holmgren’s new book, RetroSuburbia: the downshifters guide to a resilient future (2018) is a bold manifesto on how to activate change that begins in the household. RetroSuburbia promotes household food growing, retrofitting and non-monetary activities of exchange and reciprocity.

In this discussion, followed by an audience Q&A session, David will advance the ideas of permaculture as a creative framework for applying vital retrofits to our homes, gardens and most fundamentally, our behaviour. Come and be part of Holmgren’s insightful, thought-provoking vision for a life-enhancing sustainable future.

‘When we work with nature instead of trying to impose our will, the solution is often found within the problem.’ —DAVID HOLMGREN
