I haven't read the book but really enjoyed Holmgren's appearances on Happen Films:white belt wrote: ↑Tue Dec 01, 2020 7:43 pmI know I sound like a broken record, but I would highly recommend David Holmgren's RetroSuburbia. The electronic version is available for as cheap as a $1 donation. The focus is entirely on retrofitting an existing suburban lifestyle to be more eco-friendly.
I think the retrofitting concept is really important in addressing climate change and general sustainability. The suburbs have a huge amount of resources/energy invested in the existing development. I always get a little worried when I hear fanciful ideas about developing new communities from scratch. There is so much opportunity to improve what we've already developed. It reminds me a little of buying a new electric vehicle rather than making use of a less attractive used option.
