Good Evening Clive, Welcome to Brisbane Local Foods (BLF). Nice to have another new member on our side of the river. I am sure you will find our group friendly and willing to give advice when you need it I am sure with your knowledge of growing Fruit Trees you will be able to offer some tips to our members as well.

Here at the top of the page, you will find many GROUPS to join. One is the GARDEN VISITS, 2017 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…..
