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!
The sweltering day was made cooler by the enclave of native vegetation throughout Anne-Marie’s Eltham property, enabling the volunteers to complete their edible garden, with compost bays, swales, a pond and more!
Permablitz has long supported kinders and preschools, and on a lovely Saturday volunteers and parents alike completed the transformation of Dame Nellie Melba kinder into a sustainability wonderland.
The West Brunswick Food Forest blitz was lots of fun for people of all ages – and everyone was keen to learn new skills, make new friends and care for the community food forest.
Permablitzing seems to provide an excellent incentive to maintaining a garden. Three years later and the garden is still a joy. Carol says there was nothing that didn’t work out. What was planned and implemented works well and they are still developing more…
