Information

Seed swappers

In this group, you can list the seeds you are willing to share when you can't make it to the Garden visits. Anybody who wishes to get seeds can become friends with the donor and send a message to get their postal address. You then send your own self-addressed and stamped envelope and seed packaging to the donor for them to return by post. Hope this makes sense :-)

Hi Natalie,
I have Cos lettuce and rocket seeds that were saved if you would like some. I'm at Brighton. I'd love some of your sweet peas.
I'll send you a private message with my address. We could post them to each other.
My other lettuces seeded as well but I didn't save their seed so they scattered but will come up in the garden and grounds at the right time :)

I have sweet pea seeds from last year, old fashioned Painted Lady. Would love to swap for other seeds. I'm particularly interested in dwarf sweet peas if anyone has some. Also lettuce.

Thanks Susanne, I will look for the red snake beans at next GV.  When is the best time to plant them.

Susanne, I can't make Valeries on 5th March, any chance you can save some for me and I'll grab them at your GV in April

Susan, would love some of the red beans

Comment by Lissa on February 26, 2016 at 5:52

Pat - have sent you a message, thank you.

Susanne - Can you bring some of these along on the 12th please? My snake beans did abysmally this year. As did the cucumbers.

Red summer snake beans

I have seeds for these if anyone is interested and wants to get a last crop in before winter.
They are prolific and I've found that the ants seem to do the pollinating (have heard that the plant extrudes a nectar that attracts them to the flowering tips)
Anyway they get a bit 'antsy' when I go to pick their beans. :)

About this site

Welcome to Brisbane Local Food (BLF)!

This site was created by site-founder, 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.
