"I doubt that 'hot composting' will kill all the grass seeds in lawn clippings. You'd need at least an internal  60C for 30 days. But then grass/weed seeds are everywhere. Just look at the local mulched landscaping job outside…"

"PS I've also tried the grass clippings route but you've got to be very patient and wait til its hot composted all the way though. Otherwise you are spreading grass seed everywhere (urgh!!)"

Sophie commented on Megan's status
"I've used woodchips - prefer the rough small ones to the clean cut cypress as turns to compost more easily. The latter seem to not decompose at all! If you've cut your own tree down and its been mulched with leaves and all that is the…"

"Would be OK used on pathways and I tend to use it more around established growing trees etc.  It is basically a similar thing to the forest floor.  "

Dave Riley commented on Megan's status
"I don't use wood chips and never would primarily because I don't know the properties of the trees chipped. Attributes that help to suppress weeds (such as the oils from camphor laurel, eucalyptus,pine, melaleucas, etc ) may also sabotage…"

Fresh Local Provisions: Fresh Food, Local and Online

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.

Why local?
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.
