David Holmgren – Aussie St at Nannup, WA
We couldn’t be more excited to announce an addition to the program. David Holmgren, permaculture visionary and story teller takes us back through the decades of our lived history 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 in the Great Depression of the 2020s. Aussie St is a permaculture soap opera, made real by masterful story telling that sounds a warning and clarion call for direct action on the home front. The presentation is also a window into the rich palette of design solutions and tips that Holmgren has explored in in his latest opus, Retrosuburbia; the downshifters guide to a resilient future. Come and be entertained, inspired and challenged by one of Australia’s unsung heroes.
