Permablitz comes to Hawaii: parking lot is transformed into edible landscape


PermablitzHI is a grassroots movement restoring Hawaii's food security one backyard at a time.

 Hawaii's first Permablitz transformed the parking lot behind Sweet Home Waimanalo cafe into an edible landscape featuring a mandala kitchen garden, banana circle, living fence, worm farm, and an experimental sweet potato stack (for starters):

Plans for a mini-fruit-orchard, shipping-pallet-seating-area, and other goodies are in the works.

Permablitzes are entirely volunteer-based, and are based on permaculture design principles, reciprocity (the more you give the more you gain), and sharing resources. 

Stay tuned to the PermablitzHI website for PermablitzHI #s 2, 3, and 4, coming soon.
