*We’ve set a cap of 40 people for this Permablitz so get in quick!
Grab your spades and gloves, get sweaty, have fun, learn lots and feel all warm and fuzzy afterwards at a fantastic community based Permablitz for Braybrook & Maidstone Neighbourhood House!
BMNH brings together residents from vast cultural and social backgrounds in their inner west location. They recently lost all of their veggie garden when their premises were renovated so we’re starting again from scratch! This permablitz will transform the backyard into a beautiful edible oasis that will provide much needed food for the users of the house, as well as a wonderfully welcoming social and educational space for future workshops and community gatherings.
This permaculture design will incorporate a mixture of ground level and raised garden beds for easy wheelchair access, plantings of perennial and annual vegetables and companion plants, a scented garden, herb spiral, productive fruit and nut orchard and dripper irrigation installed. We’ll be maximising use of vertical space by espaliering many of the fruit trees as well as including some edible vines. There will also be other interesting workshops run on the day.
