About this site

Welcome to Brisbane Local Food (BLF)!

This site was created by Scarlett Patrick in 2008 to build capacity in the Brisbane  community for growing, buying, and living sustainably. BLF is now 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.  Feel free to support us by clicking on the Donation tab at the top of the page. 

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.
