Good Morning Lyn, Welcome to Brisbane Local Foods (BLF). Although you don't live in Brisbane, I am sure you will find our site of particular interest to you regarding working toward a Sustainable Lifestyle. With regard to your wanting to find members who may have Perennial Nasturtium tubers or seeds(mashua), we have a section in FORUM called BUY, SELL, SWAP, FREEBIES Link,  http://brisbanelocalfood.ning.com/forum/categories/buy-sell-swap-freebies/listForCategory ,where you can ADD a request for anything you are looking for. 

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. If you are ever up our way we would love to meet you at one of our GV's. 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…..

The Vetiver Community Project is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
