Event Description

Our suburbs are a gleaners paradise, the overhanging branches and diverse pickings are tribute to our bountiful subtropical climate andmulticultural heritage. But the decades of nativist plantings, and the overly-cautious policies that keep food producing trees off of our nature strips lest somebody slip on a macadamia, or be offended by fallen fruit, has dampened the cities potential as a veritable food forest.

The edible streets tour offers an introduction to foods, fungi, weeds and other functional plants that inhabit our urban environment. Along the way we discuss the ethical considerations of harvesting, share maps, surplus and ideas to contribute to our edible landscapes.

Last year we helped the authors of The Weed Forager's Handbook with their research on wild edibles in Brisbane and we will have copies of the book for sale on the day.

BYO hat, comfy shoes and water.

9-12 Saturday 13th September, 2014

Tickets are $15/12 (concession).

To book, follow the link in the Event listing (at the bottom of the information). Please note that RSVP here does not equate to a booking.

If anyone would like a copy of the wonderful guide Weed Foragers Handbook and can't attend on the day, organise pre-payment with Ben and I can collect the books for you on the day and get them to you somehow.

Using the Site, Sharing and Getting Involved


We love your garden pics! Just be sure to remove the location information from your picture if you're sharing photos from your IPhone to avoid sending your details out to the world wide web. To find out how to do this, click here.

Note that on the main page only the most recent discussion activity is displayed.

If you want to explore all of the forum, go to or select Forum in the red menu bar which runs across the top of the home page. 

Choose to view by category (e.g. Plant and Seed Varieties, Books and Movies) or by most recent/ popular etc - use view drop down at top right of page.

If you wish to follow a discussion (you'll be notified of replies) select <Follow> at the extreme bottom right of the relevant discussion.

Some good discussions/ answers have been moved over into the FAQ forum topic for ease of reference.


Ning provides a search engine for the entire BLF site (extreme top right in the dark green bar). 

Each part of the website can also be searched separately. Navigate to the particular area (was it a photo, a discussion, a blog?) using the red menu on the top of the home page. Then search within that section, using the search bar at top left in the white part of the page. This will narrow your search results markedly. 



The blog (web-log) section is best for diary-style posts covering multiple topics - like what you've been up to in your own garden. The discussion forum is better for single topics and where other people can build on what you've said.

Please use the discussion forum or message function where you can. People are less likely to find your topic in future when browsing if it's in the blog section.

Please try to post blogs once a week or less (save it up and post all at once!), to maximise the air time on the main page for other blog posters. Love it, but we have to share the space :)

When you start a discussion or a blog, adding some key words in the "add tags" field will help other people to find the content they're looking for later on (using the search engine).

If in doubt just ask or post anyway! :)
