Brisbane Local Food

Growing local

A network for those who grow, buy, make, sell and share local food. Because these things are improbably, yet reverberatingly important.

Site tips:

1. Join the Garden Visits "group" so you can be inspired by other members' gardens. Check the CALENDAR for dates and suburbs.

2. You can search the whole site for content by using the search window on the far right (near your site name). Don't forget to add "tags" to your photos and blogs to aid searching.

3. How to search for content in photos

4.  Search BLF directly via Google (thanks Dave!)

About this site

Welcome to Brisbane Local Food (BLF)!

This site was created by site-founder, Scarlett Patrick, to build capacity in the Brisbane  community for growing, buying, and living sustainably. Six years on, BLF is an important hub to promote, discuss, share and learn about local food growing, production, gardens, services and activities happening in our part of the world.

This site exists for you - make the most if it!

BLF is motivated by passion, not profit. We thank all volunteers and members who make this an active and inspiring space to be, as well as those individuals, organisations and groups working to make the future greener.

 

What is local?
The closer the better - but regional and global activities are important too.

Why local?
To reduce food miles, increase food freshness & security, improve social outcomes and reduce the unused outputs of our living environments - like stormwater and green waste.

Brisbane is a sub-tropical city in Queensland, Australia.

Joining Up

Everyone is welcome - beginners, dabblers, experts or the plain curious!

New members are approved by the site administrators (Farina, Lissa and Andy) to keep out the spammers. Please ensure you provide enough details to help us make a judgement about whether you are a real gardener or a spammer.

Apologies for any delays this might cause (usually 48 hours max).
