Event Description

Saturday 6 September from 9.30-12.30
at Spring Pastures Drive Mapleton 4560

The Fruit tree pruning workshop was such a hit we are following with fruit tree care.
Imagine having your own fruit that was juicy, bountiful and organic, just outside the door. Would you love to know how to identify pests and diseases and how to use a selection of organic treatments to support your trees? Perhaps you'd really like some fruit but want to give them the best start in poor soil...
Then you will really enjoy this workshop. So why not book in now?

We will be covering on the morning:
• Preparing to plant
• Looking after your trees from the ground up
• Nutrients and living soils
• Biodynamic tree paste
• Tree Treating diseases of fruit trees using organic methods
• Treating pests of fruit trees using organic methods
Its just for 12 people so everyone gets the chance to ask questions, practice and become confident. For $65 you'll get notes, expert info, practice, personalised attention from Linda, an organic horticulturist, and a delicious morning tea.
Book now by calling 0732063676 or

Same day as the GV for me. Hopefully there will be another workshop down the track I can attend.

Lovely setting in Willy's acreage garden. Lots of useful information to be had.

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.
