Brisbane Local Food

Growing local

I have been in touch with Veronica Cougan, who runs a Bushfoods farm at Obi Obi near the Sunshine coast. They have a lot of mature Bushfood trees and a nursery. I have been there before and we had a walk and talk tour and a Bushfoods morning tea. They still do this at a cost of $10 p/p.

There are a number of possible ways to visit. A stand alone visit. A visit to this on the way to a garden site at a members house (Northside). A visit on the way to or from Susan's place at Gympie. Or if there are only a few people interested, you arrange the visit yourselves.

The site is a little steep, in places. Those with mobility issues may struggle going over all the property. Please give feedback on this, particularly on which model of visit you would prefer.

I would prefer on the way to Susan's but I know that she is keen to visit Greenharvest on the way up to Gympie, so what do YOU want?

it is an 1 hour 42 mins drive for us so definitely something to combine with other events. We have been quite happy with Paten park nursery in The Gap but their choice can be limited.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
