Permablitz London: garden makeover

On Saturday 15th March 2014 twenty people from Permablitz London gathered to establish the Cecil Sharp House entrance garden: the herb spiral, the crescent-shaped compost raised bed, the pond, the gravel, the slate pathway and the beds.

On Saturday 14th March 2015 thirty people from Permablitz London worked to transform the walled garden at Cecil Sharp House, establishing a butterfly bed, a sensory bed and the bridal border.

Having a Permablitz for your garden

Permablitzes spread through a network of reciprocity. Once you have been to a few permablitzes (usually three) you can have one for your own garden or rooftop/balcony. A permablitz involves a group of people meeting up for the day to create or develop a household or community edible, wildlife-friendly garden, according to a permaculture design.

Join a Permablitz:

  • New permablitzers are always welcome
  • Learn about permaculture and gardening
  • Enjoy skill-shares and mini-workshops
  • Meet new people and build stronger community networks
  • Share some good food and have lots of fun
