You may be surprised to know that the waiting list of prospective blitz hosts is very short. And there are many, many people eager and ready to come to a blitz at your place right now!
So please don’t hesitate to contact us with your project if you feel you’re ready! Consider that by becoming a blitz host, you’d be giving to others as much you as may have received yourself! Without permablitz hosts, permablitzes don’t happen! Don’t be shy, give it a go!….
The first thing to do is to have a permaculture plan prepared. There are a couple of ways to find help:
- You attend a Permaculture Design Course to help you prepare your design. Check out when the next course is in your region at PiNZ . Either run as a residential course for up to 2 weeks, or as a weekend module course spread out over several months.
- You choose & contact a professional permaculture designer to help you prepare your design, such as Greenbridge in Taranaki.
- You ask us to connect you with volunteer help. Send us a (brief) paragraph describing your project. We’ll send your project out to the volunteers in the Permablitz Design Guild. These are recent permaculture design course graduates that have asked us for projects to build their design experience. click here to be directed to the Volunteer design request page
You choose which way you’d like to go about preparing your design, use a volunteer or pay a professional.
Once your plan is prepared, your designer may be prepared to be the overall facilitator on blitz day, but not always. If they have prepared your plan as a volunteer, they may prefer to hand this job over to someone else. We’ll help you find someone in this case.
