The transformative power of Permablitz

| Off-Farm goings on, Urban Permaculture | 3 comments | Author :

At the Permaculture Design Course we just finished in Sydney, Adam Grubb got everyone truly inspired about the power of Permablitz. A good permablitz is an valuable opportunity to participate in design, community, digging, growing and learning, all in one day.

Following on from Adam’s excellent ‘How to run a Permablitz really well’ talk that he gave during his visit (video of the talk is below), there’s been a few videos come to light that really help understand just why a permablitz is so darn cool. So I thought I’d share them with you…

A great timelapse from a November 2011 permablitz in Brunswick, Melbourne:

And a great Permablitz at Angel Street Community Garden, Newtown, Sydney, in 2008:

A lovely slideshow of a blitz in a small backyard at Reservoir, Melbourne, in 2009

    A big shout out to some of my good mates whose faces appear in these shots like Dan, Adam and Kat. But also, to one of the unsung heroes of the early blitz days and someone whose face doesn’t appear cause as well as running the day, he was behind the camera: Paul Fogarty. Paul’s a legend and in the first couple of years, he ran more blitzes than anyone, keeping it fun and full of learning. Cheers
