Hi Vivienne, Thanks for inviting me as your friend and offering to help me to find a place with good soil. I just noticed that. I am still not very familiar with BLF website.

Hi Vivienne,

Thanks for your email,

Yes I am always interested in sharing ideas. The ideas I have experimented in have mostly been gleaned from visiting other peoples places and even some from TV shows, etc. for example growing in PVC tubes was gleaned from watching on Tino on Gardening Australia. Carrots are my most successful crops grown this way over the cooler months. Growing in Horse Feed bags came from a visit to a very resourceful refugee arrival who was often moving from one rental house to another. It was his way of being able to move   house and take his garden with him. He used lasagne type layers of leaves / grass clippings / food scraps / and any manure he could scrounge. His crops cost almost nothing to grow and were easily movable when the time came. 

Anyway thanks for the contact I look forward to sharing ideas with you on this,

Regards Roger

Only just saw your reply Vivienne.  Sorry about that.  I might be biased but the folks here are quite a lovely bunch.  It's well worth coming along to a garden visit to meet a few of them.  Jeez, it's well worth going to a garden visit just to eat the food!  LOL.

Welcome Vivienne,  I sincerely hope you are able to come and enjoy our garden events.  Some of us employ permaculture practices and some organic growers and some grow just what they need to supplement their daily food needs.   

We love growing fruit trees and have a collection of common and rare fruit trees and vines. Maybe we are getting a bit physically aged but our minds are still young.  

You would be a great asset to our group with your knowledge of plants and your ability to turn "waste materials"into food and more.

Good Evening Vivienne, Welcome to Brisbane Local Foods (BLF). I am sure you will be a very welcome New Member to our Site.

Here at the top of the page, you will find many GROUPS to join. One of these is the GARDEN VISITS, 2020 GARDEN VISITS CALENDAR .

I am sure you would enjoy visiting our member’s gardens. We have members who grow many different kinds of Gardens, Permaculture, Aquaculture, Wicking Beds, Traditional and many more. The GV's are usually held once a month. At the GV's we share cuttings, plants, produce, seeds, knowledge as well as a good chat and a lovely Homemade Morning Teas. 

We have many subjects of interest, if you have any questions I am sure we would have a member or site available to answer that question. If you feel you are particularly adept in a field you may like to add a new Group to our List or perhaps do a talk or demonstration at one of our GV. If a yes for the GV you might like to friend me and we can see what we can do. We are always looking for new ideas.

You may like to go into your page and change the Pea Leaf Avatar for one of your own, it makes it a little more personal and as soon as we see your own Avatar we know who it is. Please enjoy BLF…..
