Brisbane Local Food

Growing local

One off my bucket list, we visited the Narangba Nursery which is run by a young couple and they are doing a good job.  They have their own tissue culture bananas and quite a few exotic and native plants on hand. This Syzygium is known as the rose apple, a bright red watery fruit which is mostly seedless.  

The tree has been thoroughly researched for it's medicinal qualities,  maybe this is why the islander people love to have this tree.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
