Lunchbox/Soapbox: David Holmgren on Retrofitting the Suburbs for Sustainability

Listen to Lunchbox/Soapbox: David Holmgren on Retrofitting the Suburbs for Sustainability

In his Lunchbox/Soapbox talk, David Holmgren explores the profound improvements that the application of permaculture principles and strategies could deliver for the sustainability and liveability of today’s suburbs.

Through the microcosm of four adjacent houses in ‘Aussie Street’, Holmgren demonstrates how suburbs can and will respond to the converging economic, energy and climate crises, and discovers how you can stimulate positive household and community resilience in the face of these pressures.
