What is a permablitz?
A permablitz involves a group of people meeting up for the day to:
- Typically, create or develop a community or household edible, wildlife-friendly garden, according to a permaculture design. Permablitzes can also involve sustainable non-food growing projects. For example, eco-friendly builds such as making compost toilets or retro-fits of existing homes as well as growing fibre for clothes or planting for fuel.
- Learn about permaculture and gardening through skills shares and mini-workshops
- Build community networks
- Share some good food
- and have lots of fun
They are organised on a voluntary basis – no one is paid and its free to come along.
