Water Tank Install and DIY First Flush Diverter

After a year of sitting on it's side waiting for me to get around to installing it the water tank is finally up and as a bonus the rain came and filled it.

My 'organic' gutter garden with stuff growing in it before the mesh.

DIY home made FREE(almost) EM Bokashi Mix (Not using store concentrate!)

I've been doing some Bokashi posts in the last few days on my website for some friends who were asking about it. The search function on ning doesn't seem to have filters or advanced search functionality so I couldn't really check to see if this has already been discussed. I figured I'd post it here as well and if it helps someone, bonus!…

Built my IBC Wicking Beds

After having no luck with my other beds I decided that perhaps wicking beds are the better solution for my neglectful gardening habits. I decided to modify regular wicking beds and put in a reservoir to save money on media and increase water retention in the system.

Market Cart

It wasn't a great day at the markets yesterday (they're monthly) but I'm proud of my snazzy market cart which is being renovated.

Looking gooood.

It used to be a bike cart and I'd carry my community artz workshop wares around from school to school with me peddling up front.

Since it has been used to ferry my canoe to the seashore.

Now it's a perfect produce market artefact. What style,…

I only really write about one thing in my blog posts...

...possums!

So, I guess it's time for the latest update on my battle with them. If you see my previous blog post, I had two areas that were set up to deal with possums. One area was protected with a nylon mesh, combining architectural elements of the Sydney Opera House with the visual appeal of a plastic bag stuck on a barbed wire fence. The other area had a low electrified fence. The…

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.
