Saving the Suburbs from the City

Could you explain the strategy of Retrofitting the Suburbs?

Permaculture author, David Holmgren, explains his ideas about how suburban housing is ideally suited to incremental retrofitting. By providing for more human needs closer to where we live we can prepare for an energy descent future, while also building community.

Our housing: 4-bedroom house with attached cottage; warm, quiet, private, with sunny garden area and 4-24 healthy fruit trees; Our covered areas: 1 double garage; 1 drive-in workshop (84-124 square metres); 2 storage sheds (each 48-96 square metres); 1 green house (48-124 square metres, working); Our land: 4-12 hectares of fertile, sheltered, well-drained, well-fenced, gently sloping farmland.
