RetroSuburbia trainers and facilitators workshop – Vic

Did you enjoy David Holmgren’s RetroSuburbia and want to share the message wider? This two-day workshop is open to permaculture and sustainability trainers and community networkers who want to incorporate the book’s inspirational ideas and practical solutions into their current or future work. Participants will explore methods and tools for supporting people to create fulfilling, abundant and sustainable lives through retrofitting their homes, gardens and lifestyles.

The workshop will:

  • explore themes from RetroSuburbia in more detail
  • allow you to try out, and contribute to, retrosuburbia resources such as games and interactive spreadsheets
  • provide a forum for sharing your ideas and experiences with other participants working in similar fields
  • help you create a plan for your retrosuburban education and/or facilitation work

Undertaking this workshop will allow you full access to the retrosuburbia resources being developed to help educators and facilitators, as well as giving you the opportunity to be listed as a RetroSuburbia Facilitator on retrosuburbia.com if you choose.

The cost of this workshop is $400 for two days including morning and afternoon teas. We encourage you to bring food to share for lunch. There will be an optional tour and dinner at local urban permaculture enthusiast Joel Meadow’s on the Saturday evening.

Workshop facilitator, Beck Lowe worked closely with David Holmgren on RetroSuburbia – editing, researching and project managing. She is an enthusiastic and experienced permaculture educator and has been involved in permaculture training at all levels from introductory workshops to post-graduate for more than 15 years. She runs regular Permaculture Design Courses in central Victoria, and will once again be a lead teacher on the Rocklyn Ashram PDC.
