Brisbane Local Food

Growing local

is mainstream actually picking up on what we are doing. It is a great feel good story about 1 man, a bad street and the healing powers of vegies.

On the same page, Lyn and her logan community gardens got a mention, as did Logan Can with Kathy Faldt. 

Well done guys, great team work. Lovely spread. Lyn: can you make Katie a friend?

Cheers guys!

Yes it is a wonderful story Gabrielle. Thank you for posting the link, I don't get the paper so would have missed it. Please clarify one thing for me ... I understood that Logan CAN morphed into Logan Community Garden (or a similar name) now it seems they are two separate organisations.

Lyn is a member of Logan CAN and has taken her own initiative to set up Logan Community Gardens. Logan Can was always only the place where any and all initiatives come together and help with info and lobbying. E.g. Warren was helped by Kathy with funding proposals, St pauls school attends because they want to know what other community gardens are doing, I attend because i can see the organisation I work for being an info hub at some stage. Logan Can may help anyone, is auspiced by laca, and is a sort of umbrella promoting community gardens in any which way. Lyn's site will be a wonderful vehicle and Logan Can could express themselves on it as a member or group, same as on here. 

Hope this clarifies. personally I think it all furthers the cause and that it doesn't matter that much who belongs to whom. Regards

Great story Gabrielle! When you first mentioned this garden last year I really wanted to get involved; unfortunately I haven't been able to, but it's fantastic to see this get some exposure.

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.
