As we reported earlier, David Holmgren will give a presentation at Rainbow Serpent Festival over the Australia Day weekend in January 2014. He will discuss the very apt subject on “Permaculture and Festivals; fringe delusion and degeneration or action at the edge?” reflecting on his own experiences in both.
Permaculture and music festivals have been prominent expressions of the counterculture in Australia over the last three decades. What can young people salvage from that history as they find their way in a mad world, fix the mess and enjoying the trip? Permaculture co-founder David Holmgren paints the big picture with amazing stories of festivals where permaculture was first in action, knock on impacts around the world and the opportunities amongst the crap of the unfolding Brown Tech future.
Do not miss the chance to hear his talk at Rainbow 2014.
Bushfire has been a recurring theme in my work over nearly four decades and a central concern for anyone involved in permaculture design, teaching and practice in rural Australia, especially the south east of the continent, which has the dubious title of being the most bushfire prone region in the world.
