Brisbane Local Food

Growing local

Just passing this on from Lynn, Logan Food Gardeners. Great idea!!

A few weeks ago I met Alistair, one of the founders of , at an event in South Brisbane. RipeNearMe is a new Australian based website that makes it easy to find people who’ve got excess fruit/veg to share or sell, and for you to list your own. It’s pretty slick and I would love to see it get off the ground and become a really useful way for all of us to share our produce.

They are looking to make some major improvements to the site, and are crowd funding to raise the required funds for development. They have just 4 days left to reach their target, so I’d encourage you to look at their crowd funding page and pledge if you can to help them continue building a better food system. There’s some great rewards on offer too!


Have a look at some of the links below.

Thanks and talk to you soon,


Lyn Buffett
