2018 Burlington Permaculture Permablitz Application
Might your place be suitable for a Permablitz in 2018?  The Burlington Permaculture Permablitz Network will begin with 3-4 residential permablitzes from May through November this year. Some of which may be public, community, or multiple stakeholder locations. Permablitzes are work parties, comparable to barn-raisings, that implement several parts of a permaculture design all in one day. They function as community-building, hands-on educational events and can accomplish more than an individual resident or household might be able to achieve in an entire season. Permablitzes are work parties built on the foundation of good permaculture design.
We're seeking permablitz hosts who:
- are or have been committed to reciprocity: by working on other properties, supporting the network in other ways
- are willing to consider creative ways of using their home and yard to foster community, resource abundance, education, land access, or mutual aid.
- are bridge-builders to other communities, networks, or groups of people in this area

Permablitzes take steps towards accomplishing the physical work and the community work of transformation and resilience-building.

Please submit your information no later than Friday, April 14th, 2018!
