Permablitz at Jenoshua
Sat. 29 April 2017, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm AWST
Our focus is edible gardens and our ultimate aim is to make the suburbs edible enough so that if food ever became unaffordable, you wouldn’t even notice.
At a Permablitz you're learning by doing, while getting ideas for your own garden, participating in free workshops, while meeting good people, helping to reduce food miles and water use, beautifying underused spaces, sharing resources, eating great food, and preparing the way for healthier, tastier food, while building community networks and urban resilience.
And what does all this cost you?
Nothing! And if you attend ...two or so blitzes we can help organise one at your house!
What to expect on a Permablitz day
There will be a brief intro in which the design for the day and the ideas behind it will be explained and then we'll get to work. You'll be shown what to do and be working with others in teams on the various projects in the garden. Teams can rotate so you can get some hands on experience in all the different projects, and there will be short workshops throughout the day on a variety of topics.
The hosts will provide a shared lunch for the workers -- bring something if you would like to share, but you don't have to. By about four o'clock we'll break and thank everyone. By then, quite a transformation should have taken place! You'll hopefully go home brimming with ideas, having met lots of wonderful people, having had a taste of permaculture design and having been learning by doing.
Would you like to run a Permablitz in your area? Or start a network to keep running them? It's remarkable how much positive energy you can engage with a tiny bit of organising. Anyone can do it with the right energy and attitude.
We would love to see everyday people rolling out edible permaculture gardens in the suburbs. Contact us for some help to get started.If you're someone who has completed your Permaculture Design Certificate and you'd like some hands on practice then get in touch with us and you can help to run a blitz or even organise your own!
