Retrosuburbia – The Downshifters Guide to a Resilient Future

David Holmgren, 2018

Written by permaculture co-originator, Retrosuburbia is a guide for everyone looking to transform their community into a permaculture paradise.

Rather than uprooting ourselves and moving to some idyllic place in the country where everything already works the way we want it to, Retrosuburbia challenges us to take steps to improve the neighbourhoods we live in.

Whilst Retrosuburbia includes the usual permaculture advice around gardening and site design, it also discusses community building and other behavioural aspects of permaculture.

Retrosuburbia is a manual for taking permaculture to the cities. After all, that’s where most of us live.
