Today in our garden

An exciting day today - we harvested the first bunch of lady finger bananas. Two more bunches coming. The blue faced honey eater came and shouted at me and fluffed all his hair up in disgust when I was cutting one of the flower bells off. Funny critter - sorry little buddy! I left one for him - felt too mean. Found two ripe passionfruits and a small ripe pawpaw.

Tips for using the features on this site

It's taken me a while to work out how to do some things on this site:

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.
