Permablitz #28

From Scratch Permablitz, Katikati

Saturday 31st March 2018, 9am – 4pm
Location: Katikati, register to find out where

We are starting from scratch on a newly established, beautiful one-acre riverside site just south of Katikati.

This is an opportunity to be involved in the very early stages of planning and implementing a Permaculture garden. Trish Waugh will talk about the Living Design Process which has been used here to make some initial decisions about the development of the land.

Our hosts are excited about sharing their piece of paradise with like-minded people and invite participants to stay on after the blitz for a shared dinner, swim in the river and to stay the night if you bring your own tent.

During the course of the day we will be focusing on how to;

  • Construct a ponga wall
  • Set up a fenced chicken run
  • How to site and plant fruit trees
  • How to build a compost bin and make hot compost
  • And lots more

We have some great workshops lined up and there may be special Easter activities for children (and adults) if anyone is keen.

This is a large area, we have room for up to 40 people.

Our hosts will provide hot and cold drinks, morning tea and a vegetarian lunch. If you would like to stay for dinner, please bring something to share.

What to bring:
-Both Rubber gloves (for handling the mix) and other sturdy gardening gloves
-Gardening tools (labelled with your name) – spade or shovel, wire cutters, wheelbarrow.
-Water bottle
-Hat and sun protection and wet weather gear
