My first blog ~ Autumn Garden

I've been meaning to post for a while, but kept procrastinating ~



Not much going on with the garden ~ A volunteer cherry tomato started fruiting in the front yard, but the green grape I sow with seeds from Fiona didn’t grow anymore from since it was 2 cm high… and now yellowing… now what did I do? ^^ Probably most likely what I didn’t do though… >__< .. I’ve sprayed some diluted seasol on them today…

The thing to do with pineapples



I'm afraid that our chickens are completely stupid fluff-brains. Serves me right for getting designer chickens. I pulled the sunflower stalks and put them in their pen. They sit on them, but don't eat them. So I pulled the seeds out of the flowerhead and made interested noises so they would realise they could eat them. Nope.

Garden coming to life!

The Big Crunch

I think the start of 2009 marked the beginning of the big crunch. Back in the seventies we were speculating on how we needed to get back to a grass roots lifestyle in order to prepare ourselves for when things go pear shaped on planet earth. The best thing we can do is to grow and produce as much of our own food as we can.

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.
