"How did you go with sorting out an area where you could start something of with Helen. I am a fan of strawberries and I know that they can be quite forgiving as long as you keep a bit of water up to them and as Roger Clark  mentioned…"

"If the issue is that the only garden beds available are in the shade then growing in pots means you may be able to move the plants into sun or into the shade as needed. Pots of a size that are easily moved would be needed. And a good water…"

"Helen, shade is the issue. Few edibles will do well in the shade. Is there some way you can get your beds or pots out into the sun? Full sun 4 to 6 hours a day would be a minimum. In what suburb do you live? Perhaps there's a member nearby who…"

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

Here at the top of the page, you will find many GROUPS to join. One of these is the GARDEN VISITS, 2019 GARDEN VISITS CALENDAR. We have a GV on this Sunday if you are interested in coming along. 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. If you feel you are particularly adept in a field you may like to add a new Group to our List or perhaps do a talk or demonstration at one of our GV. If a yes for the GV you might like to friend me and we can see what we can do. We are always looking for new ideas.

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…..
