How it all began
Permablitzes originated in Melbourne, Australia in 2006 from a collaboration between permaculture designers Dan Palmer and Adam Grubb, and a South American community group. Since then the permablitz network in Melbourne has grown and they have now done over 150 permablitzes and groups have sprouted all over the world. For a fuller story see Asha Bee’s article and Katherine Kizilos’ article for The Age newspaper. You can find out more about Permablitz Melbourne from their website.
How it launched in London
Permablitz London was initiated at the 2013 London Permaculture Festival by Kayode Olafimihan (Festival Organiser). Permablitzing offers a way of putting permaculture into practice by creating new gardens based on permaculture designs. Permablitzes have taken place at community gardens, LAND projects (find out more about LAND projects here) and private gardens. You can find out about the permablitzes we have done so far under Previous Permablitzes.
