Brisbane Local Food

Growing local



GMO = Genetically Modified Organisms, including food.

There is a lot of discussion at the moment about the pros and cons of GM food and it's all a bit confusing figuring out whether it's something that will affect us and our loved ones personally in the future in a positive or negative way.

In the interests of educating ourselves and keeping all information in one easy to access place I have started this group so all articles can be posted in one spot.

Feel free to use "Add a Discussion" to post information you find, pro or con.

Jane - you reminded me about the Patrick Moore interview about Golden Rice. I've added it to Discussions.

Thanks for sharing Vanessa :)

Just throw anything new you find into a new "+ Add a Discussion" (just above the words "Comment Wall"). That way people can discuss individual topics.

You can always add links for your videos on the home page too, for a wider audience than just the GM Group.

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.
