I want to be quite transparent with the site's finances. As a result, I intend to publish annual financial statements.  This raises a few questions;  1.  If you donated money, do you want me to hide…Continue

Following along the lines my thinking about funding the site, I reckon that I'd like to be able to buy some Brisbane Local Food merchandise.  I'm thinking tee shirts, hoodies, cups, magnets or…Continue

The header picture won't update.  Issue has been reported and is apparently a bug.  Ning engineering is onto it but we we be ugly for a little while.

Happy to donate $25 to keep the site as is. This is by far the easiest way if we get enough donors.

I'm in!  Oh, but I will be away for the next 3 days camping on the glorious Sunshine Coast - mwhahahahaha!  (Ooops, sorry about that.)

Absolutely Gabrielle! I was thinking it might be best to give it a little while before kicking off discussions here in order to allow everyone to exhaust / digest / find the previous conversations and for those who are interested to join this group. In which case we pause for a bit. How does that sound? Thanks for all joining!

Would it be useful to go over the topics mentions and turn them into bundled discussions? 

Not sure if a separate group will deter or encourage people to comment, but I am in. 

Thanks for all your energy.

Great idea :)

As you already know, my aim is to create more workshops in my local area of Moreton and encouraging more membership in the region. Accessing funding is the first step. Will be talking today with Linda from Yandina Community Gdns to learn how they go about it. She did mention that my local council already have access to the Living Smart funding! so it might be simpler than I thought to get things moving....somehow I doubt it though lol.
