Join leading writer and permaculture co-originator David Holmgren as he explores the power of ecological writing in our transition to a carbon-positive, low-energy future. In conversation with acclaimed writer Cate Kennedy (The World Beneath), Holmgren unpacks his own writing life and its influence on society, following his remarkable trajectory from the ground-breaking publication of Permaculture One in 1978 to international best-seller Permaculture: principles and pathways beyond sustainability (2002) and now to his acclaimed new book, RetroSuburbia: the downshifter’s guide to a resilient future (2018).

We hope you enjoy listening to two of Australia’s most vital and thought-provoking writers.
