Permablitz Tasmania is a state-wide initiative by Permaculture Tasmania by volunteers- transforming one household and community at a time!
What is a 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*
build community, and have fun!
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. Fortunately, Permaculture Tasmania has a variety of PDC (and above) trained folks available to assist with Permablitzes – get in touch!
The network runs on reciprocity, and in order to qualify for a Permablitz at your place you usually need to come to at least two first – otherwise return the favour to at least two Permablitzes after your house.
Permablitzes are always free, public events, with free workshops and shared food, where you get some exercise and have a good time. All costs of materials are covered by the host, although a call out for free recycled materials can be conducted.
Join our Facebook group here, and when you do, we recommend you introduce yourself, indicate your general geographic location (if seeking to host!) and nominate yourself as a potential designer, worker bee or permablitz host. Roles are described here: http://www.permablitz.net/guides/
