Welcome to Permablitz Melbourne!

Join us to revisit a permablitzed garden!

Right now, if we were to follow the seasonal cycles of the Gariwerd people, we would find ourselves in the middle of Petyan, which is the season of wildlife and wildflowers. It’s when the days are warmer, although the weather can be tempestuous, and the bush bursts into life.

Azolla

Azolla Pinnata, Red Azolla, Water Fern, Duckweed or whatever you want to call it is a fern-like native that has been eaten by Aborigines of Australia for millenia, and is only now finding popularity...

Fighting to save the bees

Simon is a beekeeper based on the Mornington Peninsula, who has made it his mission to educate people about the plight of bees in our environment, both indigenous and introduced.

Lettuce

Lettuce is an annual plant, most often grown as a leaf vegetable, and is most often used for salads – yum!

Murnong

The murnong has a flower shaped like a dandelion, and beneath its innocuous, grass-like leaves lies a delicious, sweet yam.
