Glengall Wharf Garden

October

Permablitz London has been building the soil in the forest garden area of Glengall Wharf Garden by laying down a lasagne mulch each year. Over the last five years since the first permablitz the soil that has been created by the soil-food-web supports a wide range of plants. This permablitz according to a permaculture design prepared by  Glengall Wharf permaculture LAND project, will involve laying down the next layer of lasagne mulch and will include mini-workshops on lasagne mulching, supporting the soil-food-web and harvesting and cooking the produce of the forest garden.

Perma-Blitz

Perma – from permaculture, a design system for sustainable living. A permablitz is organised to implement a permaculture design. Blitz – is the German word for a lightning strike. A permablitz involves the focused application of energy to install part of a permaculture system. When lightning strikes it heats the air around it making the nitrogen in the air absorbable in water. So the nitrogen dissolves in the rain, which fertilizes the ground where it falls. This is just what a permablitz is designed to do: create a fertile soil where plants can grow.
