Creating Retrosuburbia in Your Garden
In this workshop, facilitated by Beck Lowe, participants will be invited to consider their current garden space and household setup, and start planning for increases in sustainability, productivity and resilience. We will use the ideas in David Holmgren’s book RetroSuburbia: the downshifter’s guide to a resilient future, to examine the potential for household-scale food production and introduce permaculture food growing strategies.
By the end of the workshop, participants will have a starting point for designing their gardens – and lifestyles – to become bountiful and sustainable.
In partnership with Banyule City Council.
