Yes, I get the 'husband needs to drive' thing (I DO have a licence but a very small 'home range', due to being a nervous Nellie on the roads!).
Kumbartcho's nursery IS open on Easter Saturday, 8am 'til noon,…"
If it's closer for you, Kumbartcho (where I volunteer most Tuesdays, although possibly not the coming one!) has a fantastic bed of Cats' Whiskers growing there, and should have them available from the…"
Yes, I 'work' at Kumbartcho (volunteer work!) on Tuesdays - not actually in the nursery, but in the attached Environmental Education Centre there (15 Bunya Pine Court, Eatons Hill).
I could send you the website link, but it will…"
"Re. mites - it really would be good to know if there was anything you could do to 'treat' the compost afterwards (it seems that the mound-compost would be a total waste if it had been 'turkeyed'...and let's face it, there…"
"I watched this with my daughter this afternoon, and even before they were on, I said to her, 'OOh, I bet they're going to talk to Prof. Jones!' That story then distracted us from what we'd been earlier planning to do after GA…"
Yes, I thought the point about the fences was a bit 'off', too (despite Prof. Jones being one of my former lecturers/fave bird people!). I volunteer at Kumbartcho, and there are a few around there - one roosts regularly in a…"
"Interestingly, I didn't get to Elizabeth's garden visit yesterday, BUT I believe I may have recognised her wonderful garden from the photos, and from driving past during the last week! (When I drove past a wonderful garden in a…"
I am currently involved with the following community gardens and groups:

About this site
Welcome to Brisbane Local Food (BLF)!
This site was created by Scarlett Patrick, to build capacity in the Brisbane community for growing, buying, and living sustainably. Six years on, BLF is an important hub to promote, discuss, share and learn about local food growing, production, gardens, services and activities happening in our part of the world.
This site exists for you - make the most if it!
BLF is motivated by passion, not profit. We thank all volunteers and members who make this an active and inspiring space to be, as well as those individuals, organisations and groups working to make the future greener.
What is local?
The closer the better - but regional and global activities are important too.
To reduce food miles, increase food freshness & security, improve social outcomes and reduce the unused outputs of our living environments - like stormwater and green waste.
Brisbane is a sub-tropical city in Queensland, Australia.
