Aussie Street is the history and future of suburbia as a serious but humorous presentation by permaculture co-originator David Holmgren. Over more than a decade this presentation has inspired creative household and neighbourhood responses to climate, energy and economic threats that increasingly cast a pall over the future of suburbia.
Rather than condemning our history and prospects, Aussie St empowers and enlivens us. Aussie St is now a short story built into a new book Retrosuburbia: the downshifter’s guide to a resilient future. This manual draws together the patterns glimpsed in the presentation both of which have been transformed by Brenna Quinlan beautiful illustrations.
