Urban Permaculture Food Forest Garden

John from Growing Your Greens  goes on a field trip outside Portland, Oregon to visit one amazing Urban Permaculture Food Forest Garden. In this episode, John will share just some of the techniques and unique edible plants that are being grown in this permaculture garden. You will learn about the edible Impatiens balfourii... aka Poor Man's Orchid which explode when you touch them and so much more.



Permablitz
Adam from Permablitz Melbourne shows Sydney how its done!
Adam Grubb founded Permablitz as part of a crew of Melbourne permaculturalists in 2006. Since then, Melbourne Permblitz has delivered many, many successful permablitzes in the greater Melbourne area, and the concept of Permablitz has spread to Sydney, Adelaide, Alice Springs, Darwin, Canberra, Tasmania, Bega, the Sunshine Coast, California, Montreal, Istanbul and Uganda.

DIY Kit: Permablitz Kit

A permablitz is a permaculture-inspired backyard, frontyard or community makeover where people come together to build a food garden, share knowledge and skills about organic food production in urban gardens while building community and having fun. Anyone can come, and for many it’s their first experience with permaculture design or food gardening. Basically we get a lot of people together with tools, plants and knowledge and we go to someones house and build a permaculture vegie garden. This is a not for profit, volunteer based idea with reciprocation in mind. If you want a permaculture veggie garden at your place then you are encouraged to help out at other permablitz's first. People who have had a blitz at their house are encouraged to repay the favor by helping out at other blitz's.
