RetroSuburbia: resilient futures with David Holmgren
Join us for an engaging conversation with permaculture co-originator David Holmgren. David will share his Aussie St work – an exploration of our suburban history and future – made real by masterful storytelling that sounds a warning and clarion call for direct action on the home front. The presentation will help us understand the vital retrofits to our homes, gardens and behaviours that Holmgren has explored in in his latest opus, RetroSuburbia; the downshifters guide to a resilient future. Afterwards David will participate in a panel discussion with Apollo Bay locals, followed by a Q&A.
