PermacultureWest invites you to this presentation to inspire and arm you with ideas and knowledge to live with lower environmental impact in our modern suburban landscape.

‘Aussie Street’ explores the story of four adjacent suburban homes responding to the effects of our changing environment and climate crises.

There will be lots of time for questions as well as sales and signing of David’s book Retrosuburbia: the downshifters guide to a resilient future.

At this Retrosuburbia event, Holmgren will advance Permaculture ideas as a creative framework for applying vital retrofits to our homes, gardens and, most fundamentally, our behaviours. David will take 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 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 Street is a permaculture soap opera, made real by masterful storytelling 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.

Ticket prices include catering and the chance to engage and be inspired by one of our greatest Permaculture idols.

Held in the Margaret River HEART, enter from the rear of the venue closest to Gloucester Park parking bays. Doors open at 1.30pm and the talk commences at 2pm. 

In collaboration with Arts Margaret River & Fair Harvest Permaculture.
