2015 Portland Maine Permablitz Locations!
Might your place be suitable for a permablitz in 2015? The Portland Permablitz Network will convene 5-6 residential permablitzes from May through November this year. In addition, we'll convene three more that are 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 3, 2015!
