Profile Information

About me:
I live at Lake Macquarie but visit my son and his children at Carina Heights and my grandson and family at Burpengary as often as I am able. I have a long history of home gardening as did my parents and grandparents and now my son and grandson. I lived in PNG for three years in the early 70s and loved the local food especially pit pit, taro and Kau Kai which I grow now. I am coming up to Brisbane on 25th June and would like to bring back some pit pit and taro to grow.
I am interested in:
Gardening and craft
I can offer (you can't offer too much or too little - we don't mind)
What I am looking for:
Plants or Produce

Good Morning Shirley, Welcome to Brisbane Local Foods (BLF). Although you don't live in Brisbane I am sure you will find our site useful. If you are ever up our way when we are having one of our Garden Visits you would be most welcome to join us.

Here at the top of the page, you will find many GROUPS to join. One is the GARDEN VISITS, 2017 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 interest, if you have any questions I am sure we would have a member or site available to answer that question.

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…..

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver 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.
