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.
