Waterwise Permablitz, Sunday 14 July 2019

A permablitz is a day of practical actions, implementing ideas, transforming areas and providing a brilliant hands-on learning opportunity for all participants. All activities on the blitz revolve around on creating a regenerative system based on permaculture design. Following on from the waterwise workshop, this permablitz will focus on four activities that demonstrate how to be more waterwise in the house and garden.

After an introduction and explanation we will get cracking on the activities for about 3 hours then sit back and bask in our achievements over a shared lunch and refreshing cold drink or hot cup of tea depending on the weather.

Permablitz activities:

  • Attaching a water tank to a chook house
  • Building a grey-water cleaning system
  • Making a micro-organism activator
  • And planting low water fruit trees


9:30 AM - 2:00 PM
