RetroSuburbia Workshop with Beck Lowe
Are you looking to create a more sustainable and resilient household? Wondering if the suburbs are the right place for you? Wanting to grow more food, reduce your energy use and have a more satisfying, fulfilling life? These and other themes from David Holmgren’s new book RetroSuburbia: the downshifter’s guide to a resilient future will be explored in this two-day workshop. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss various aspects of the book, and undertake activities and exercises to help them assess their current situation and plan for the future.
Beck Lowe worked closely with David Holmgren on RetroSuburbia as chief editor, researcher and project manager. Since publication, she has also taken on the role of education coordinator. She is an enthusiastic and experienced permaculture educator and has been involved in permaculture training at all levels – from introductory workshops to post-graduate certificate – for more than 15 years.
