Wall Garden and Broad Beans

The new area in Back Garden, was made by layering branches, twigs, compost, cow manure, the mulches up limbs of a very large Quandong, straw, cardboard and newspaper.

Into it has been planted Dwarf Mango - King Thai, Abiu, Dwarf Mango – Irwin, An Avocado, Davidson Plum

Added to our Citrus Collection are, Australian Round Lime, Bush Lemon Tree (hoping this one lives), Australian Round Lime, Yuzu

Still to be planted - Lychee - Wai Chee, Babaco (Grafted), Lemon – Eureka, Myoga Ginger, Finger Lime – Alstonville, Lime – Kassia

The Side Salvia Garden now has some Friends sharing their space, Dwarf Peach – Standard, Dwarf Apricot – Moorpark, Dwarf Peach - Sunset Backyard Beauty, Dwarf Nectarine - Sunset Backyard Beauty, Muscadine Grape – Adonis, Muscadine Grape – Noble

I have forgotten to mention a few of the newies but I am sure you get the gist of it, this place will be a Fruit Forest one day only hope I will be here when they all fruit. I am so happy with the progress of the garden, it has thrived under some harsh conditions at times.

Looking lovely and lush Dianne :) Very nice.

Loving all the great labels (we all say we're going to do it and don't! but you do).

Loving all the berries you are growing. By the time I have my own garden again you will be able to advise me which are the best to plant ;)

Wow have you been busy!! Always love looking at your photo's Dianne - your garden is a work of art.  I wish I could put things together so beautifully.

Beautiful, as always Dianne! So much going on in your garden. I don't know how you do it! I could never keep up with it all.

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.
