At this time the PB #3 permaculture design is in progress and is being compiled by Earthshed Solutions’ certified designers and PDC graduate interns.

WHAT TO BRING:

  • Please bring a small dish to share as well as your own dishes, utensils, and cup for the POTLUCK. There are limited dishes available in the library so please remember to bring your own if you can. If you do use library dishes we ask that you wash them when you are done.
  • If you have anything in SURPLUS (vegetables, home preserved food, eggs, fruit, seed, plant starts etc.) please bring it along and we’ll ‘Share the Surplus’ after the Potluck.

What is a PermaBlitz?

A PermaBlitz is a FREE event open to the public, where you learn new skills as it relates to permaculture, complete various projects and activities, share food, get some exercise, and have fun. You can find out more here: https://earthshed.org/permablitz/.
