Profile Information

About me:
I'm passionate about kickstarting an urban farming movement in Brisbane, market gardening, local food systems, community building, encouraging sustainable living by demonstrating and doing (not preaching), symbiotic and macrobiotic eating, minimalism.
I am a civil engineer by day, but my real passion is in improving our broken food systems and that is where I am heading once I can financially sustain myself.
I am currently involved with the following community gardens and groups:
I am currently coordinating a backyard based urban farming project in Brisbane that uses backyards and schools in the inner city to grow veges for the locals, reducing food miles to almost zero. Visit for more details.
I am also Vice President of Beelarong Community Farm in Morningside and a member of the Turnstyle Bulk Buyers group in Highgate Hill.
I am interested in:
Small scale organic market gardening, urban farming, sustainable food production, community based living, agrihoods (not yet in Australia but watch this space!)
I can offer (you can't offer too much or too little - we don't mind)
Information, Community Involvement, Gardening Help
My website is:
What I am looking for:

Welcome James.  Check out the events page for garden related activities.  In the forum tab, you'll find pages such as buy,swap, sell that might be of interest.
