Growing local

I've been playing around a little with growing sprouts. It's an easy thing to do and produces a quick source of food that is very good for you.

Sunflower, Buckwheat, Peas and Broccoli are our favourites although they're called 'micro-greens' these days.

Nice work Andy, I love sprouts.

I sprout barley, oats, sunflower (sometimes others, but not sorghum) for the chooks and goats. You get bang for buck out of the grain and it's great for their gut health (as with our's).

I actually got it from Farina. It works really well.

Hi Andy, that was really good to see.  I've never had much success with sprouts, mostly because I forget to water.  I think that bag idea is neat - where did you get it?

Mine are in a pad thai tonight!

Many ways to make sprouts/micro-greens! Currently I do them in potting mix, water once and forget until harvest.

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.
