We learned about planting, composting and pruning, made new friends and even grew a greater understanding in what is involved in establishing a food forest!

The Montmorency blitz was a food-fuelled day of hugelkultur, eating, wicking beds, eating, orchard planting, eating, chicken coop upgrading and eating. And eating!
Two weekends after the Permablitz proper, the design team returned to wrap up the job. It was amazing to see how much lighter and more open the backyard looked, and how well the alternative lawn was settling in!
This blitz was the result of a super-powered team-up with the Country Women’s Association, My Smart Garden and little old us – and with our combined efforts we made this Newport yard and verge more sustainable – and more edible!
Noura and Barry are a young couple in a new suburban house on about 1300 m2, with a sloping backyard with a bit of couch and oxalis, and an old shed but not much else. A blank canvas ready for some serious plantings!
On a cold and rainy day, a dedicated team of blitzers set about converting a narrow but roomy inner-north backyard into a perma-productive garden.
A great design has ensured that this garden will serve Alex and Nicole well into the future, and the garden is already providing not only food but play spaces too!
Three years after their permablitz, Michelle and Chris now have all the lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers and other veggies they could want. And with the herbs beds, there is generally enough seasonal produce for the whole family!
This blitz heated up as eager blitz volunteers met in the brick and concrete settings of the Box Hill Central Mall with a vision of transformative action – some herb’n’veggie-filled wicking beds were going to be made!
A fun filled day in Fairfield spent preparing an edible verge, building a pond and preparing the world’s best chook house… It’s the Permablitz way!
