Permablitz London is part of an international movement to implement permaculture design systems for sustainable living. Typically, a ‘permablitz’ creates or develops a community edible, wildlife-friendly garden, according to a permaculture design.

The site for Yale Day of Service permablitz is Glengall Wharf Garden in South London. The project originated with a group of local people keen to get growing sustainably in this part of Peckham. The goal is to develop the site as a resource for local people to share skills related to food and growing. A permablitz day provides volunteers an opportunity to learn about permaculture and gardening through skills shares and mini-workshops, build community networks, share some good food and have lots of fun.

The Permablitz London facilitator will demonstrate what needs to be done, which can include a variety of different jobs including: moving soil, manure or wood chips for new veg beds or mulching; planting; installing water butts; pruning; construction work (creating raised beds or bug hotels for example) or creating irrigation systems. This is a family friendly, all-age, all-skills event.
