Good Afternoon Carol, Welcome to Brisbane Local Foods (BLF). I see you might start up a group in Bowen, is that where you live as I do know parts of Bowen are very Sandy. As Andy says, please do read some of Dave's BLOGS and Items in the FORUM as he is a master at turning Sand into Soil.

Here at the top of the page, you will find many GROUPS to join. One is the GARDEN VISITS, 2017 GARDEN VISITS CALENDAR here. If ever in Brisbane I am sure you would enjoy visiting our member’s gardens, we would love to meet you. 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.

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…..

Welcome to the site Carol.  A few of our members have had to do sandy soil improvement (Dave Riley springs straight to mind) so you can probably get some good hints and help.

GrowVetiver

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.
