Permablitz # 32

THIS PERMABLITZ IS NOW FULL-registrations are closed!

Location: Welcome Bay, register to find out where

Date: 18 September 10am-3pm

Andrea and Hone are a homesteading family in Welcome Bay, who have a passion for sustainable living and environmental stewardship.

They’ve worked hard over the years as a family to craft a landscape that suits them, and this PermaBlitz is the starting point as they begin a new stage on their property. They’re working hard to re-establish a riparian area of native plants for restoration and traditional rongoa-maori uses. They’re also keen to create a social space for the educational workshops they often host for community events.

This will be a good opportunity to see how permaculture can be applied in a variety of situations; learning about native rongoa-maori plants and uses, riparian restoration, and a permaculture design process in creating outdoor social spaces.

During the course of the day we will be focusing on:

  • Traditional rongoa-maori plants and uses
  • Riparian restoration
  • Permaculture design process
  • Creating functional outdoor social spaces

This perma-blitz can accommodate 15 – 20 people.

A main lunch meal will be provided by the host, and if participants are able to contribute a small snack/baking for morning tea that would be much appreciated. Please let us know if you have any allergies or dietary requirements.
