Do you want to eat farm food and drink water in 5 years’ time?

Then this horrific story, happening 1 hour away from you, concerns you:

TALK about it, read up http://lockthegate.org.au/  http://theconversation.edu.au/pages/fossil-fuels, http://www.sixdegrees.org.au/, http://www.abc.net.au/news/specials/coal-seam-gas-by-the-numbers/

SHARE it, send this on. This is not about left or right, but about right or wrong.      Send it to all that care about food security. Get it discussed everywhere!

ACTION it, any which way that suits you http://www.getup.org.au/campaigns/coal-seam-gas/csg-ad-petition/don... I have called all politicians in my area, and it is amazing what they do and don’t know. Very informative! http://www.queenslandlabor.org/candidates/,  http://lnp.org.au/index.php?Itemid=6

Oh and there is an alternative to that idea that mines bring jobs. They don’t actually, but this does: http://beyondzeroemissions.org/, Beyond Zero Emissions is an independent, not-for-profit organisation of scientists and experts who worked out how Australia can do renewable energy and create heaps of steady jobs and cheap energy by 2020!  PASS THIS FORWARD

Using the Site, Sharing and Getting Involved

POSTING PHOTOS

We love your garden pics! Just be sure to remove the location information from your picture if you're sharing photos from your IPhone to avoid sending your details out to the world wide web. To find out how to do this, click here.

USING THE FORUM
Note that on the main page only the most recent discussion activity is displayed.

If you want to explore all of the forum, go to http://brisbanelocalfood.ning.com/forum or select Forum in the red menu bar which runs across the top of the home page. 

Choose to view by category (e.g. Plant and Seed Varieties, Books and Movies) or by most recent/ popular etc - use view drop down at top right of page.

If you wish to follow a discussion (you'll be notified of replies) select <Follow> at the extreme bottom right of the relevant discussion.

Some good discussions/ answers have been moved over into the FAQ forum topic for ease of reference.

SEARCHING FOR CONTENT

Ning provides a search engine for the entire BLF site (extreme top right in the dark green bar). 

Each part of the website can also be searched separately. Navigate to the particular area (was it a photo, a discussion, a blog?) using the red menu on the top of the home page. Then search within that section, using the search bar at top left in the white part of the page. This will narrow your search results markedly. 

 

BLOGS

The blog (web-log) section is best for diary-style posts covering multiple topics - like what you've been up to in your own garden. The discussion forum is better for single topics and where other people can build on what you've said.

Please use the discussion forum or message function where you can. People are less likely to find your topic in future when browsing if it's in the blog section.

Please try to post blogs once a week or less (save it up and post all at once!), to maximise the air time on the main page for other blog posters. Love it, but we have to share the space :)


TAGS
When you start a discussion or a blog, adding some key words in the "add tags" field will help other people to find the content they're looking for later on (using the search engine).


If in doubt just ask or post anyway! :)
