A Permablitz is an organized gathering of community members with the intention of transforming space (usually an urban backyard) into a productive ecosystem through Permaculture design. The host and permaculture designer will have the design ready and now everyone pitches in to help make this vision a reality. Many hands make light work! Permablitzes are free to attend and organized on a voluntary basis.

A little permablitz history: Dan Palmer and Adam Grub from the Melbourne Permaculture community group created the original permablitz network as a way of encouraging Melbourne to embrace edible landscaping while building community at the same time. Find out more at: http://www.permablitz.net
Everyone! If you enjoy meeting new people, sharing skills, getting your hands dirty and learning something new, you’ll love a permablitz.
Don’t worry if you have no gardening experience or you know nothing about permaculture. Permablitzes are a great way to learn. There are always a variety of jobs whatever your experience or physical ability. We have had people of all ages come to take part – from 3 to 75 years.
We also need people to take photos and videos of each Permablitz. Let us know if this interests you.
