    Event description

    Ballarat Permaculture Guild is doing a truly Retro-suburbia Permablitz!

    Our hosts, James, Vardis and Andrew are doing a shared blitz across their joined backyard retro-suburbia style.

    Both properties have a permaculture focus and we will be working on both at once as the space is shared between the properties.

    Tasks on the day will include:

    - Planting an orchard on the terraced back yard with sheet mulching and mulch

    - Building a compost bay system

    - Moving the chooks to a new space to allow them to interact with the compost system above

    - Preparing the space for and installing wicking beds

    - Preparing watering system and filling raised garden beds

    - A suburban swale to manage the overflow water and water the orchard

    - Moving some native shrubs to help with screening

    Lunch and refreshments will be provided by the hosts, so registration is essential for catering purposes.

    PermaBlitz is about people helping people, learning skills and seeing permaculture designs in action. Don't know what a PermaBlitz is and if it is for you? Watch this video from Gardening Australia with the awesome Hannah running one in Tasmania:
