Using your greens - a very simple Spanakopita recipe

"Huch confirmed... it just did not look as tasty as yours .... no shame, you certainly made up for it with the rest, and this black pot shan't chastise you over the lack of using their own cheese ;)"

"For those who have being mixing in far less, I would be guessing that it's probably due to the instructions supplied with product you used. A quick search over the varying products in Australia revealed instructions ranging from 50 grams…"

Baby Pineapple

"Thanks Lissa, something different's always fun. Jeff, 15 have germinated so far, with maybe a few more to come (some were sowed more recently). Conjoining factors, such as size, season, growth, and where I'm at when the time seems right,…"

Elaine de Saxe replied to Rob Collings's discussion Pineapple Seeds
"Full sun is part of the clue to growing good Pines. Mine in semi-shade have taken more than 2 years. I've found that writing a date and the type of material (top, pup) on the leaves with a garden marker does help to keep track of growth."

Running on empty

Posted on March 8, 2016 at 22:30 13 Comments

I have found water supply to be an issue this year. It's the first summer in over 10 that I have seen the dam empty. In the past, it's been full/overflow-running by December at the latest.

The banana trees below sit at the base of the small dam (dam out of picture and to the right).…

Wicking Reservoir-Pipe Experiment

Posted on June 7, 2015 at 21:00 3 Comments

I'm expanding my front veggie garden at the moment, and decided to add some form of water savings to a section of the expansion in case I have another dry spring and summer like last year.

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.
