Garden Visits

Follow the calendar link below to check out where the group is visiting throughout the year or to choose a date for your own GV:



We're always looking for new gardens to visit. Don't be shy, it's easy and no one expects "perfection" (whatever that is) they just want somewhere to meet up and chat!

Please take a few moments to follow the link above and read the simple instructions in full.

Then contact Dianne with the information needed so I organise an Event Listing for your visit.


It's amazing what we can learn by visiting other peoples gardens. I know I pick up at least one good idea or plant each time.

You might be surprised at how keen other members are to visit your garden and see what you are growing, how your chooks / quails are kept, share their own excess produce, cuttings, seed and generally just have a good old chat with other like minded people.

Be brave!

The visits are informal and free. Choose to come to as many or few as you wish.

Dianne's mobile number 0407 691 485 for emergencies.


Anyone is welcome to post and organise their own Events of any kind - in fact it is encouraged.

If you choose to do this please put your own name down as organiser, not mine. It can be very confusing for everyone if my name is on it and I know nothing about the Event.

Responsibility for running the event is up to the organiser.

Thank you

Looks like a good event coming up, I would be interested to learn about fermenting, if that's OK.  We have the stuff needed, I think.

Comment by Dianne Caswell on June 18, 2016 at 11:55

The days taken up with mosaic club outback are:

July 2nd,16th and 30th. August 13th and 27th...

The mosaics peeps use the tables so we wouldn't have the space to do the veg.

Big W sell the Ball Mason jars. Will get some there.

Comment by Lissa on June 18, 2016 at 7:02

I would like to attend if possible. Dates good for me: July 30th,  Aug 6th, Aug 20th. 

I have all the gear named but do need to get hold of some good jars as mine have gone off to become homes for Kombucha.

Comment by CHERYL SLAPP on June 18, 2016 at 6:20

I'm happy to go with the ones mentioned below - especially sauerkraut.   I can attend any Saturday during July/August from the 16th July onwards (except for 13 August which is Robs GV).

Comment by Dianne Caswell on June 17, 2016 at 21:45

Hi Dave, I will message you with the dates available as there is a bit going on that I know some people who are interested in are going to. I do already have some wanting to attend..


Fresh Local Provisions: Fresh Food, Local and Online

About this site

Welcome to Brisbane Local Food (BLF)!

This site was created by Scarlett Patrick, to build capacity in the Brisbane  community for growing, buying, and living sustainably. Six years on, BLF is an important hub to promote, discuss, share and learn about local food growing, production, gardens, services and activities happening in our part of the world.

This site exists for you - make the most if it!

BLF is motivated by passion, not profit. We thank all volunteers and members who make this an active and inspiring space to be, as well as those individuals, organisations and groups working to make the future greener.


What is local?
The closer the better - but regional and global activities are important too.

Why local?
To reduce food miles, increase food freshness & security, improve social outcomes and reduce the unused outputs of our living environments - like stormwater and green waste.

Brisbane is a sub-tropical city in Queensland, Australia.
