Are you looking to create a more sustainable and resilient household? Wondering how to retrofit your current home or circumstances? Wanting to grow more food, reduce your energy use and enjoy a more satisfying, fulfilling life? Join David Holmgren and Beck Lowe in exploring these and other themes from David’s bestselling book “RetroSuburbia: the downshifter’s guide to a resilient future.”
You are warmly welcome to join this special masterclass with the co-originator of permaculture and the author of Retrosuburbia, David Holmgren. David will explore with us ways we can relocalise our food system in the suburbs and why this is an area he believes holds so much hope for the future of climate safe, resilient and regenerative futures. David advocates for garden farming in the non-monetary household and community economies of gift and reciprocity, and says this will have a big part to play in growing new urban food systems in the shadow of the old.
Learn how affordable housing can generate Shire-wide benefits for all our community.
