"Joe, there is plenty of racehorse manure at eaglefarm area. Just be aware that it must be stable manure as some field horses have access to nutgrass.  Drive around the suburb and see it beside the road.  We take replacement bags with us."

Good Afternoon Joe, 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, 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 that may be of interest, if you have any questions I am sure we would have a member or site available to answer that question. I am sure with your experience you will be a big asset to BLF.

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.
