On Tuesday the 20th of May we hosted the second in a series of Permablitz
Designers Guild Sessions at the Farnham St Neighbourhood Learning Centre in
As a reminder, these Guild Sessions are designed as a way to gather, share
skills, and meet the other great people in the Permablitz network. They are
hosted at rotating locations across the city and we'll have three more
events before year end
Alejandra got the night started with a fantastic short workshop on the many
aspects of facilitation. People brainstormed positive and negative
facilitation techniques and we reviewed our experiences. At the end,
everyone had a better understanding of how to be a better facilitator and
The most wonderfully located Blitz happened on May 31st in Brunswick near the Merri, CERES and the Russian Orthodox church.
Over the last 30 years in the “Hipster Fringes” of Brunswick, a unique and highly productive
The first Permablitz Designers Guild Session for 2014 was held at CERES on the 7th of April and was a great success! A big thanks to all those who came along to get involved.
We had a great presentation by Nase & Nikki about their eye opening trip to Cuba for the 2013 International Permaculture Convergence, and thanks to Hermann for presenting his controversial angle on Biochar!
Thanks also to CERES & Nase again for hosting us. It was a great evening with plenty of networking, permaculture discussions and some hot debate!
If you'd like to come along to the 2nd Guild Session of 2014, please do! They are open to all, even if you're not on the Designers Guild.
The next event will be on Tuesday 20th May at Flemington's Farnham St Neighbourhood Learning Centre; info here.
We are back for another Blitz in the Mill Park Food Forest.
On a partially sunny Sunday on the 16 March 2014 12 people and an Irish wolfhound shared good moments among the trees. There was even a journalist from Germany who is going to write an article about Permablitz!
The garden at Mill Park Salvation Army has a number of robust garden beds and a healthy and thriving demonstration food forest garden, which was planted last year. Previously amazing berms and swales have been put down to support fruit trees on contour, now they need some help to grow!
While we are in a bit of a summer heat break with new Blitzes at the moment, we want to take some time and catch up with some Blitzes that happened in the hectic spring time.
Here is one in North Carlton for your enjoyment! With Video!
