Event Description

FOOTPATH GARDENING with Jerry Coleby-Williams

"To boldly garden where no one has gardened before"

Would you like to put some nature in that nature strip?

 Gardening in public open space is a social service, reduces crime and vandalism as well as improving  neighbourliness.

Investment studies reveal sought-after properties tend to be in streets lined with shade trees and gardens, and that homes with well-tended gardens sell for around 10% more.

This session explores the various trials, tribulations and happy surprises of footpath gardening as well as the economic, social and environmental benefits it brings to property owners and local communities.

(Different Councils allow different types of Footpath Gardening - please check with your local Council before doing anything.)

For further enquiries, please phone (07) 3325 3492

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.
