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. Ten 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. Feel free to support us by clicking on the Donation tab at the top of the page.

Brisbane is a sub-tropical city in Queensland, Australia.
