First of our Monthly Garden Visits for Logan Food Gardeners

Wow.  What an absolute success!  On Sunday 11 September Logan Food Gardeners has its first get together.  We had 23 adults plus kids for morning tea, chat and a wander around the garden.  This was an absolutely fantastic turnout, considering the online group has only been going for just over 1 month.  Already though the group has 72 members and is growing every day.

I have had heaps of really positive feed back about the visit on Sunday and the Logan Food Gardeners online site.  It is…

Donna's Garden - September 2011

It's been a long time since I got back into the garden.  Not a lot growing in the vegetable gardens I cleared a month or so ago... planted heaps of seeds but none of them seemed to want to grow with the exception of beetroot and a lonely kale plant.  After going to a heap of effort and drawing a map of where I planted what, this time I just planted willy nilly without taking notes - so am expecting everything to germinate lol!



I went to the green shed and bought a…

2011 SPRING September to November

My native bees…

Berries in Brisbane ~

Yes, we can grow berries in Brisbane :)


Went home today to help mum cut down the passionfruit vines, she already cleaned up a couple, and there are four more ~ took us a couple of hours ~ together with the ones she harvested over the past week we ended up with more than a 40 litre tub full of yellow and red passionfruits ~ Not bad since we've been harvesting for 3 or 4 months, and the crows have took some.  Forgot to take pictures though....  We gave about 20 to our…

Sun power more than just hot water...

I heard on the ABC radio today that solar power has now fallen below the price of coal fired power generation to produce. Hooray, at last! In a country with bounteous sun, so it should be that way.  

It got me to thinking about ways people have been capitalizing on the sun’s energy for millennia. One is  for drying food to preserve abundance.

While in Bhutan a few years back, I marveled at the mountains of drying chilli peppers lining the rooftops. They also dried their yak…

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.
