March blog and finally some rain.

Posted by Susan on March 19, 2017 at 10:00 13 Comments

So all that wild weather last week that everyone copped - we got nothing.  Not a single drop.  Friday through to today finally broke that.  We've had some nice gentle rain that will hopefully make everything take off.   I've got a lot of jobs to…

A quail slaughter house?!

Posted by Andrew Cumberland on March 17, 2017 at 22:30 10 Comments

I worked out that many of my quails are 2 years old or more.  That's ancient for quail.  Rather than let the old birds die, I really should cull them while they can be eaten.  

In terms of my cages, two of the three whites are younger (1…

TWO WEEKS IN DAYBORO

Posted by Lissa on March 4, 2017 at 13:00 35 Comments

I am very fond of Dayboro, the folk are down to earth, the scenery gorgeous. It's still close to amenities but feels "country".  So the opportunity to spend, all up, 8 weeks here is most pleasureable. 

I am staying for two weeks at Lynn…

Summer is not over until I say it is.

Posted by Dave Riley on March 2, 2017 at 22:30 5 Comments

No surprise that I also had a rough Summer.



Ran out of mulch. The plants crisped up.Weeds took over. Too hot to toil...



Best consequence was that my clay pots kept the strong rooted mature annual plants alive. Seedlings,…

Garden Feb 2017

Posted by Sophie on March 2, 2017 at 17:30 10 Comments

Late at posting, late at planting.. This summer has really taken it out of me (& the garden). Haven't started by autumn sowings yet so am wondering whether would be better off postponing the GV a month or two til I have a bit more to show for…

Fresh Local Provisions: Fresh Food, Local and Online

About this site

Welcome to Brisbane Local Food (BLF)!

This site was created by 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.
