Getting Inspired – Costa and Permablitz
I first discovered Permablitz a couple of years ago when I borrowed the DVD collection of Costa’s Garden Odyssey from my local library. I was trying to learn more about gardening, and I can’t remember if someone told me about this series, or if I read about it, but either way – I loved this series. I found Costa to be really engaging and passionate about sustainability, gardening and nature as a whole.
In the fourth episode, he introduced the team from Permablitz. I was blown away – everything about it was just so amazing! I loved the comaraderie, the skills-building, the volunteering to create a better edible space, the lot! Before the episode had even finished I’d signed up to the website’s newsletter, followed them on their Facebook page and eagerly waited for my chance to attend a blitz myself.
Thanks to being inspired by people such as Costa, Angelo and the Permablitz team I now have thriving edible garden with wicking beds, chickens, bees and even a pond – and I’ve never been happier! Check out this video below that got me started on this journey – who knows? Maybe it will inspire you too!
PS. I’ve heard there’s been a lot of hating on Costa’s beard. I reckon the beard makes the man 😉
