Permaculture co-originator, David Holmgren, has launched his bestselling book, RetroSuburbia: the downshifter’s guide to a resilient future, published as a pay-what-you-feel online book. His decision is in response to the latest health and economic crisis, that has galvanised enthusiasm in permaculture and kindred circles. David hopes his book will inspire those who have been ‘stuck’ at home with digital access and time to read.

IPC-14 (INTERNATIONAL PERMACULTURE CONVERGENCE) ARGENTINA
Postponed to November – December 2021
The IPC-14 Argentina has been postponed due to the consequences of the COVID-19 global pandemic. We acknowledge the importance of permaculture and the need to share this way of life with all the world’s inhabitants. What better opportunity to do that, than at an international gathering such as this one?
In the meantime, there will be a series of online activities organised by a team of permaculture members and collaborators of the 14IPC, in order to weave and strengthen the network, maximising this time of change we are in. These activities will offer talks, presenting permaculture as a solution to what is happening in the world right now; and videos about various inspiring projects in the world that are facing the crisis in an incredible way.
