About this Event
Don’t miss this unique opportunity to see David Holmgren in Adelaide as part of his Retrosuburbia Roadshow.
This presentation will inspire you with ideas and knowledge to create a positive environmental impact in our modern suburban landscape.
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. ‘Aussie Street’ explores the story of four adjacent suburban homes responding to the effects of our changing environment and climate crises and illustrates a way forward for our suburbs.
Aussie Street is a permaculture soap opera, made real by masterful storytelling that sounds a warning and call for action. It is also a window into the design solutions and tips that Holmgren has explored in his latest book, Retrosuburbia; the downshifters guide to a resilient future, and will provide a framework to retrofit our homes, gardens and behaviours.
The presentation will be complemented by a local showcase, highlighting how we can bring these concepts to life right here in Adelaide.
There will be lots of time for questions as well as sales and signing of David’s book Retrosuburbia: the downshifter’s guide to a resilient future.
Proudly supported by Port Environment Centre, Adelaide Sustainability Centre, Permaculture SA and Adelaide Mount Lofty Ranges Natural Resource Management Board.
