    It’s all getting very exciting! We have just secured Keynote addresses from Permaculture co-originator David Holmgren and ABC Gardening Australia presenter Josh Byrne. David will be speaking on “Retrosuburbia: revitalising the landscapes and communities that will raise the next generation”. His talk will focus on the following questions: Why retrofitting, not new build, should be the focus of most permaculture design. Why the suburbs should be the focus of most permaculture design. Why building better households rather than houses should be a strategic focus of permaculture activism. Why garden and urban agriculture has such a strong future in a world of climate chaos, peak energy and economic contraction. David will highlight a very diverse range of DIY action in the suburbs with and without the permaculture label. Following on from David Holmgren’s opening address, Josh’s talk will focus on “Mainstream application of Permaculture principles in commercial and civic projects”. Josh will showcase some of the projects his team have designed and implemented – from community gardens, adventure playgrounds and recreational playspace to large-scale housing developments and electric vehicle charging infrastructure. These keynote addresses will take place as the first sessions on Wednesday morning at APC13. For more details of the program and presentations visit www.apc13.org.
