Check out Permablitz locally in Ilford
Ilford Transition Town (ITT) are going to the Forest Farm Peace Garden in Ilford to join their spring permablitz. This is a follow up from their previous permablitz in October 2017. Then a lasagne mulch was created and they planted some green manures.
This spring permablitz is going to see the planting of some unusual edible perennials according to a modified forest garden design, setting up an irrigation system and creating some children’s play and exploration elements for the garden.
There will be mini-workshops on combining plants according to permaculture guilds and an explanation of the design.

What is permablitz?
A permablitz involves a group of people meeting up for the day to:
Typically create or develop a community or household edible, wildlife-friendly garden, according to a permaculture design. Permablitzes can also involve sustainable non-food growing projects. For example, eco-friendly builds such as making compost toilets or retro-fits of existing homes as well as growing fibre for clothes or planting for fuel.
Learn about permaculture and gardening through skills shares and mini-workshops
Build community networks
Share a delicious lunch
and have lots of fun
They are organised on a voluntary basis – no one is paid and its free to come along. To find out more look at the Permablitz London website, where I got this information to share.
