Whether you are at the start of your journey to greater personal, household and collective reliance or are a seasoned manager of household abundance, Do With Su will provide inspiration, strategies and techniques, and even a recipe or two that you can add to your mix.

Q&A Add-on

Online Q&A session

Here’s your chance to ask Su any questions you still have after watching the Season One episodes.

Meet Su Dennett

Soak up some wisdom from one of the most radical women in permaculture.

Su is a force to be reckoned with, with a wicked sense of humour. She can be seen and heard along side her partner David Holmgren and together they keep the cogs of Melliodora running smoothly.

What Su can’t tell you about frugal living and funky goat cheese just ain’t worth knowing.

In these episodes filmed at Melliodora, Su will walk and talk you through key homesteading skills and tried-and-tested know how.

And you’ll meet some of her expert homesteading and permaculture friends.

What it looks like

Each of the 7 episodes contains video featuring Su Dennett or one of her guests, useful links, plus further reading, Q&A and more.
You will also have access to the Hub Do with Su online community, where you can ask questions and share knowledge with like minded folk.
