"I can source bulk organic flours - they're not too expensive by the 5kg, even cheaper by the 20kg if you have the ability to store it and turn it over quickly."

Posted on May 15, 2014 at 18:27 39 Comments

Hi everyone, 

Well here is to a new beginning but where do i start lol, walking around the yard the last few days and trying to figure out where i should start a vege patch or three ???? BUT i do know, where i would like to put my passion vine!  So it can grow over my old pergola - the steel frame is too good to throw away but the material is ripping and ready to dump   :-(…

Hi Vanessa,

Life can deal us an awful hand sometimes but there is just so much I want to do. I am so pleased I have found this site, I can see a lot of ways for me to get back into Life here. Perhaps it will motivate me to get into the garden and prune all those roses.

Since coming home from hospital I have been reorganizing my kitchen and pantry. What fun. I made labels for everything whilst in hospital, got new glass preserving bottles and threw out anything plastic. What fun I had.

I have started back into my Bread Making, Cooking and done a Cheese Making Course with Graham Redhead (fabulous).

I am sure you too will get back into your garden. If the Fairies come to me and help me out I will send them over to you...I wish.

Good Night....  Dianne

Hi Vanessa,

Lovely to have you as a friend. I am just getting back into life after 3 months in hospital. I love my garden though it badly needs many hours of love at the moment. Many roses to be pruned. I love the site and am looking forward to participating in a few events and once I can get my garden under control I would love to participate in the Garden Visits.  Have a Great Week,,,  Dianne

Could do a swap for worms and worm farms. We find the farms are good in the shade though. 0407 059 509 Nancy

Welcome back Vanessa :) Donna is still lurking, Elaine and I are still here. No doubt many new people you haven't met before are contributing, all of them wonderful :) Lots to see and do on the site. Add any Events you find won't you. Ask for help if you need it.

Yes I'm admin, helping Farina and her husband who now own the site. I've deleted your old profile.

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.
