Permaculture co-founder David Holmgren has a new book coming out this year. RetroSuburbia “focuses on the residential landscapes, backyards and behaviours of suburbia.”

The book will show how ordinary people can “downshift and retrofit their houses, gardens and lifestyles to be much more sustainable and resilient.” Holmgren focuses on changes that can be made to “built, biological and behavioural landscapes.”

While the book focuses on his home territory around Melbourne, Australia, Holmgren’s promotional website, retrosuburbia.com, includes one case study outside of Australia: that of Palmerston North City Council’s Eco Design Advisor, Nelson Lebo. https://retrosuburbia.com/case-studies/eco-thrifty-retrofit/

The presentation will cover Holmgren’s project and focus on Dr. Lebo’s property as a case study.
