Permablitzes are essentially the mother of all work parties, permaculture-style. Started in Australia, Permablitz events tap into our own local “barn raising” ethos to help each other install edible landscapes, renewable energy, water collection systems and more all in one day.
Permablitzes put permaculture design into action. Imagine more than twenty permaculture folks working side-by-side for six hours resulting in more than 180 hours completed in one day, great fun, conversation, and camaraderie as well as experiential learning for all! For a lot of people, attending a permablitz is what “gels” the information gleaned from workshops and design courses. These are family and kid friendly events.
Be sure to sign up for our newsletter or join Portland Maine Permaculture to get automatic notices of Permablitz events.
