The Nature Coast Real Food Project held a “permablitz” at the New Port Richey home of Faye and John Kropik.

What is a permablitz?

It’s like an old-fashioned barn raising, where a group of neighbors get together to create or expand someone’s garden.

The term comes from permaculture, the design system used to create edible landscaping and to grow food without synthetic fertilizers and pesticides.

Volunteers used mulch that was delivered for free from the city of New Port Richey.

The Real Food Project holds monthly permablitz events.

The group is offering free educational events on chemical-free food, food preserving, seed saving and other garden- and healthy-eating-related topics. Visit its Facebook page at www.face book.com/naturecoastrealfood project for more information.
