Eating the suburbs, one back yard at a time.

Permablitz (noun): An informal gathering involving a day on which a group of at least two people come together to achieve the following:

  • create or add to edible gardens where someone lives
  • share skills related to permaculture and sustainable living
  • build community networks
  • have fun

Permablitzes are free events, open to the public, with free workshops, shared food, where you get some exercise and have a wonderful time. To be defined as a permablitz each event must also be preceded by a permaculture design by a qualified designer. Most permablitz networks run on reciprocity, and in order to qualify for a permablitz you usually need to volunteer at other permablitzes first, although there may be other ways of qualifying.
