Permaculture Principle and Pathways beyond sustainabiltiy

If you want a clear, deep and passionate guide to how we, as a race, might adapt to the rapidly approaching reality of energy descent in such a way that we not only survive but thrive, you must read this.– Rob Hopkins, founder of the Transition movement

If the Permaculture Principles that David Holmgren discusses in this extremely important book were applied to all that we do, we would be well on the road to sustainability, and beyond. –Professor Stuart B. Hill

 

This book is relevant to every aspect of how we reorganise our lives, communities and landscapes to creatively adapt to ecological realities which shape human destiny.

For students and teachers of permaculture this book provides something more fundamental and distilled than Mollison’s encyclopedic Designers Manual.

For the general reader this book provides refreshing perspectives on a range of environmental issues and shows how permaculture is much more than a system of gardening. For anyone seriously interested in understanding the foundations for sustainable design and culture, this book is essential reading.

Although a book of ideas, the big picture is repeatedly grounded by reference to Holmgren’s own patch, Melliodora, and other practical examples.

Retrosuburbia

This 592 page manual shows how Australians can downshift and retrofit their homes, gardens, communities and, above all, themselves to be more self-organised, sustainable and resilient into an uncertain future. It promises a challenging but exciting mix of satisfying work, a more meaningful way of living and hope for the next generation.

RetroSuburbia is divided into three main sections: the Built, the Biological and the Behavioural along with the introductory section ‘Setting the scene’.

Are you looking to create a more sustainable life?
Would you like to be more resilient in the face of growing uncertainties?
Would you like to retrofit your house, your community and your life?
Are you interested in downshifting but don’t know where to start?

Whether you’re interested in the big picture of how, as communities, we can downshift our energy use, or the details of how you can grow more food for your family, RetroSuburbia is rich with real world examples and behavioural strategies applied by those already on the downshifting path.
