Hi Caroline. Hope you have found a place and settled in well. Organic hobby farming can be very satisfying and rewarding. I might be able to help you establish good soil fertility using natural materials. Let me know when you are ready.

Welcome to Brisbane Local Foods (BLF) Caroline, Here at the top of the page, you will find many GROUPS to join. One is the GARDEN VISITS, 2016 GARDEN VISITS CALENDAR here. 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.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
