We have had a number of people express interest in a permablitz this year. Permablitzes offer so many rewards – it’s a fabulous day of conversation, learning, connection, and of course progressing your landscape design. From acreage to a small back yard, laying irrigation pipes, to weeding and everything in between, it’s a great skill share opportunity in a friendly environment. Children are always welcome as they are the permies of the future! If a blitz appeals to you, simply email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Come and listen to Professor Tim Entwisle, a highly respected scientist, scientific communicator and Director of Melbourne Botanic Gardens.

He took up the role of Director and Chief Executive of Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria in March 2013, following two years in a senior role at Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, and eight years as Executive Director of the Royal Botanic Gardens and Domain Trust in Sydney.
