Adam’s Permablitz in swing!

What a great day! Working with awesome people to the funky tunes pumped from our car parked up top today was an absolute pleasure. Thank you everyone!  IMG_5347 create-an-extraordinary-future

What a wonderful day with the Permablitz volunteers working on Adam’s yard for our first ever blitz today!


Thank you everyone who came and shared in our first Permablitz day working collaboratively to develop an amazing organic food garden. You’re awesome

This really feels like a wave that everyone has been waiting for and we have so much shared enjoyment and excitement for the future of our group and where this initiative will lead us. What a wonderful feeling!


A permablitz is a permaculture-inspired backyard makeover where people come together to share knowledge and skills about organic food production in their gardens while building community and having fun.

Much like a garden, what ‘Permablitzing’ looks and feels likes for us in our valley will evolve organically over time as we shape it together as a community.


The basic idea is that by converting our lawns into organic food producing gardens, people will be able to back away from a dependence on industrial agriculture and the shipping of food back and forth across the world. At the same time, it makes organic eating accessible to everyone.


In Permaculture we are trying to mirror natural ecosystems. Working ‘with’ the earth rather than ‘on’ her. Not forcing her to do our bidding with synthetic fertilisers and pesticides but rather providing what she needs to grow naturally strong plants with minimal effort/input. She’s smiling today!

A beautiful energy there today. Can’t wait for the next one! Janet PS. We’ll bring you update photos of the garden’s growth and our experiences, wins, lessons learned and plethora of produce waiting to burst forth! Don’t forget if you’d like an invite to the next Blitz (and learn what’s needed to put your hand up for a blitz at your place) please remember to sign up to the mailing list. Till then beautiful community…

Originally from sugar cane farming in North Queensland, one of six kids with parents who always grew their own food. During my years at the bank in Sydney as Sustainability Work Stream Leader I was charged with researching sustainability issues and helping the staff in our department learn how to reduce their impact on the world; at the office, in the home, and garden. I gathered knowledge on consumption, waste and procurement dependance and implemented learnings for our staff that was a real eye opener for everyone. Our reliance on natural resources and vast international systems to entertain, feed, and clothe us makes us vulnerable, and though our collective attitude in decades' past to consumption and waste is slowly changing, more needs to be done to increase our grass roots resilience and self-reliance, both personally and in our communities. We're igniting a local movement towards greater self-reliance, food security, good health, collaboration, sharing of skills, ideas, hard work and laughs. I love growing organic heirloom vegetables and living as chemically free as possible. When we garden we truly find ourselves and each other.
