Finally completed the aquaponics grow bed

"Looks great mate! I like the idea of using smaller growbeds because they can be more easily fixed and cleaned out if something goes wrong.. and you can always add another and link them together later.."

Backyard Bakers

I was going to limit this to a bread makers' group.  But, on reading a few of my baking books, there are just too many wonderful goodies out there that need to be included.  If you bake it in an oven and it tastes darn fine, then post it here. I'll try to make some relevant threads to help keep us organised.  See More

Hey mate - are you near McDowall?  I could give you a look at the aquaponics and homesteading on a tiny block.

Good Morning Adam, Welcome to Brisbane Local Foods (BLF).

Here at the top of the page, you will find many GROUPS to join. One is the GARDEN VISITS, 2018 GARDEN VISITS CALENDAR will be posted here in the New Year. I am sure you would enjoy visiting our member’s gardens. We have members who grow many different kinds of Gardens, Permaculture, Aquaculture, Wicking Beds, Traditional and many more. The GV's are usually held once a month. At the GV's we share cuttings, plants, produce, seeds, knowledge as well as a good chat and a lovely Homemade Morning Teas. 

We have many subjects of interest, if you have any questions I am sure we would have a member or site available to answer that question.

You may like to go into your page and change the Pea Leaf Avatar for one of your own, it makes it a little more personal and as soon as we see your own Avatar we know who it is. Please enjoy BLF…..
