Beyond Brisbane Local Food

There are some BLF members who are working to encourage change beyond the scope of BLF and the work it does to encourage people to grow food in their own gardens.

About me:
I am a graduate ecologist undertaking her PhD in biophilic urbanism.
I am currently involved with the following community gardens and groups:
I am less of a gardener, more of an architect. My interest in community gardens lies in the intrinsic value of these areas in our urban landscape and how we can improve and increase their application x
I am interested in:
As active community gardeners, I'd really like to learn about your own perceptions of urban nature and how you might define a "nature loving city".

Good Evening Siobhan, 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…..
