Two Permablitzes in September, 2015

Panorama

PermaSask is organizing two permablitzes for the month of September and we’re looking for volunteers to help implement each design.   Both permablitzes are in Saskatoon.

 Sunday September 13 – in the Queen Elizabeth neighbourhood

 Saturday September 19 – in the Exhibition neighbourhood

If you would like to volunteer or would like more information please email: permablitz@permasask.ca.

Permablitzes are a great way to learn about permaculture design in a hands on way.  No experience necessary. There’s a variety of jobs to do whatever you experience or physical ability.

For this workshop we are going to do a first; combine a cob oven with a thermal-mass heater. This means that while heating and using the oven, the excess heat will be redirected through a bench, heating it up and allowing for a slow release of heat for an extended period of time.

There will be a lot to build and learn, so we hope you can make it out for those 2 evenings at the end of July.
