05.03.17 ELAINE and ELAINE's GARDEN VISIT and WICKING BED DEMONSTRATION

I must firstly apologise to Elaine’s for the lateness of this report I have been waiting to have the photos available but we have had problems putting them on from the phone to computer but today we have fixed the problem.

Thank You to Elaine’s for sharing their garden with us once again. What a wonderful morning it turned out to be. The sun was shining and it was not too hot for us to enjoy a trip around the garden. The Wicking Beds brimming with life and a tribute to the Elaine’s hard work during these dry times to produce a bountiful garden, one that is always interesting and full of ideas for the Novice and experienced Gardener.

Elaine was kind enough to give us a talk on Wicking Beds which was interesting and shared with us how to put together a bed. There was also a useful handout supplied which can also be found on the site.

Thank you to all our members who came along and we also had a few unexpected interested people come along to see how our group works and listen to Elaine’s talk.

Elaine has good success with Pineapples as shown in these Beds

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.
