Good Afternoon Ros, Welcome to Brisbane Local Foods (BLF).
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…..
Start with feta, Ros. It's relatively easy. There is a three part video in the cheese making group here: http://brisbanelocalfood.ning.com/group/cheese-makers (along with the blue and halloumi). You will need min-measuring spoons, rennet and culture starters. Most of the rest of the equipment you'll have in your kitchen. I do a lesson for $40 which uses my stuff and teaches feta and ricotta. It only takes 2 to 3 hours. If you get into it, I am a distributor for Green Living Australia so I can get you a kit or other things a bit cheaper.
