What is a Permablitz?
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
Share skills related to permaculture and sustainable living
The term permablitz is a contraction of permaculture and blitz, where a blitz simply means a focused effort to get something done.
Permablitzes are always free, public events, with free workshops and shared food, where you get some exercise and have a good time.
To be defined as a permablitz each event must be underpinned by a permaculture design by someone with a Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) the most basic permaculture qualification.
The network runs on reciprocity, and in order to qualify for a permablitz you usually need to come to some first, although there can be exceptions in this case.
