Brisbane Local Food

Growing local

While looking around on that Utube site, I found this interesting contraption.  The yanks do everything in a big way. I wonder what this machine costs.

Our son has a vacuum sealer that he uses for meat etc.  This may be adapted to do a similar job.  But watch this SITE

One could do herbs, vegies etc and more.

That is definitely interesting. I'd never heard of a Harvest Right before. It's an expensive bit of kit (nearly $3000 USD) but I suppose if you're going to 'Retire at 40', it may be a practical way of saving every morsel of food. I'd love to be able to freeze dry but I guess I'll just have to stick to drying, fermenting and pickling.

I have a polyscience chamber vacumn sealer and just realised I can fit small jars upright amd larger one laying down, this machine is about a grand but is awsome and used weekly.

If get use of it weekly then its worth it. We always spend a bit extra on quality items.  

This would properly seal and vacumn dry goods  etc and much more, for saving another day.

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.
