Invermay Permablitz – May 2023

What an amazing Blitz!!

Thanks to the attendees for such a great day. Everyone absolutely smashed it and we tore through the ambitious to do list in between drizzle, great chats, snacks and goat visits.

Also a big thank you to Bill Stubbs for sharing his plant and landscaping knowledge and the seedlings used on the day.

The BPG committee are looking for hosts, so if you could do with a few extra hands in your garden, send an email or fill in the expression of interest form on the website:

Navigators Permablitz November 2022

Please join us on Sunday 27 November for a day of connection with other like-minded people. We have a great range of tasks on offer and new skills to learn such as sheet mulching, natural fencing, chicken tractor creation, wicking bed creation and plant guilds. This is an opportunity to be involved at the beginning, in what it very much a work in progress.

Our hosts Barry and Melissa and their three children Charlotte, Emily and Freddy live on a small farm that has a range of animals and plants for both produce and lifestyle purposes including bees, sheep, horses and chickens. They are slowly restoring an old orchard and developing an overgrown berry run into a food garden. They are attempting to introduce permaculture and regenerative farming techniques in order to leave their small farm and surrounding community in a better place socially and ecologically than it was when they moved there.

Children are welcome to participate and interact with the farm animals. However please be aware that there are two large dams and other general farm hazards on the property, and children will need to be supervised across the day.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided by the hosts, so registration is essential for catering purposes. Please register a FREE ticket for each attendee (including children) and advise any dietary requirements.

Tickets are available at:

What to bring:

gardening gloves
sun gear (hat, sunscreen, long sleeved shirt etc)
covered shoes
water bottle

Big thank you to the Permablitz crew!

Thank you to everyone who helped with our first permablitz for 2022.

Such an amazing day with new raised veggie beds and compost bays, weeding, removal of the agapanthas and rubbish, cleaned up the courtyard, renewal of an old vegetable garden, planted donated strawberry plants, lots of camaraderie and sharing of knowledge, new friends, old friends with a yummy lunch and a perfect day of sunny weather.

We are so excited to have permablitzes back after a break and such a good project. Uniting and BPG have started a fabulous collaborative relationship over recent months, with Uniting very generously sharing facilities with us. It was great to be able to give back!

This is our first blitz in well over a year, and we're excited to start it with a big community project and bbq!!

Please join us on Sunday 2 October for a day of connection with other like minded people. We have a great range of tasks on offer and new skills to learn. Our host, UnitingCare, has offered a bbq. We will have hot water facilities for teas & coffees.

Registration for the day is essential.

Children are always welcome as they are the permies of the future! If you are bringing kids (and they are most welcome as area is fenced and there is some room to kick a ball and play a game), you have to be responsible for them so we can have good OHS. See less
