The permablitz presentation will encourage people to explore the possibilities for living sustainably wherever they may be. The Permablitz Crew will show how they have designed edible and beautiful gardens for inner city courtyards, suburban blocks and even a balcony. The presentation will also will include a short film on permablitz, a history of how it started and where it’s going, lots of lovely photos, how you can get involved, and discussion time
The Permablitz crew have been designing and putting in lush, edible gardens across Melbourne for the past two years. Between them they have worked in post-tsunami Aceh, India, New Zealand, and across Australia’s various ecological zones. They have designed sustainable small-scale local food production systems for a 10-acre property and an inner city balcony. Permaculture is an integrated design science, and food is just one part of the Permaculture equation. The crew design for and integrate water, energy, waste, shelter, community, local community, governance and all other aspects of sustainable living. Permablitz get excited about turning Melbourne into a luscious and edible urban-jungle food forest!
