The Permablitz BoP Collective does not run permablitzes. It exists to make the permablitz concept happen in the whole Bay of Plenty region by making the tools available to anyone and decentralising the work/fun of running permablitzes. We are effectively the voluntary administration part of the network.
- Receive details of planned Blitz events from Guild Designers and announce upcoming events through the website
- Maintain this website and the Permablitz BoP Facebook page
- Receive Permablitz event reports & then post them on the website.
- Maintain the Permablitz BoP organiser’s guides
- Maintain the Permablitz BoP Design Guild list of contacts
- Forward requests for voluntary permaculture designers to members of the Permablitz Design Guild
- Liase with Media to promote the permablitz concept in the BoP (contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org)
The collective is made up of volunteers. It is essentially unfunded and without a bank account, since there are very few costs.
The Collective are involved in the back-end admin because it’s actually generally fun, we’re learning all the time, doing something which we believe in, and meeting wonderful people along the way.
Currently, the Permablitz BOP collective is made up of:
Trish Waugh, Permablitz Design Guild Leader
Kazel Cass, Communications administrator
Teresa Partridge, Website and co-communications administrator
Hugo Verhagen, Webmaster

Many of our systems have been gifted to us by the global permaculture community and have been developed collaboratively by a new generation of philanthropic youth before us.
We acknowledge the amazing work and resources of Permablitz Melbourne and in particular the vision of the founders of the Permablitz movement, Dan Palmer and Adam Grubb.
So as proud and enthusiastic custodians of a proven model, our main role is to keep things running smoothly to ensure our local network grows steadily.
