Our Street Book + Permaculture Action Cards Launch
Calling all kids and adults!
Melliodora Publishing and Grow Do It Permaculture Education are rapt to be inviting you attend the online launch of Our Street and Permaculture Action Cards.
Our Street (based on the Aussie Street story from RetroSuburbia) is a fully illustrated story book for upper primary school age children. It explores how suburban life changes between the 1950s and 2020s, and provides a positive vision of the future. It is a useful tool for parents and educators to help inspire children with positive solutions for sustainable and resilient living, whilst reflecting on Australian history. Written by David Holmgren + Beck Lowe and illustrated by Brenna Quinlan.
The Permaculture Action Cards are made up of 65 full-colour cards. The deck features the 3 permaculture ethics, 12 principles and 50 Brenna Quinlan illustrated action cards depicting colourful characters putting them into practice in the garden, community and beyond as well as relevant lyrics & rhymes from Formidable Vegetable on the back of each card. Also included is a booklet with games and explanations of the principles as well as an A3 colour poster that can be used as a teaching aid.
The launch will feature David Holmgren, Su Dennett, Beck Lowe, Brenna Quinlan, Charlie Mgee and special musical guests Formidable Vegetable.
The event will be a free livestream. Register here for your free tickets and we’ll email you the viewing links on the day.
The first 100 books purchased at the launch will be signed by David, Beck and Brenna. In the meantime you can purchase the book from here and the cards from here.
