Profile Information

About me:
I am a 77 years old long term veggie and tree fruit gardener who is somewhat disadvantaged by advanced Parkinson's Disease..
I have been gardening for fruit and veggies for as long as I can remember going back to my early boyhood on my father's small crop farm in the mid north coast of NSW..
I am still planting veggies and harvesting from my fruit trees. Presently my citrus are presenting a lovely crop of oranges, mandarins, cumquats and lemons. Until the past year or so I have also kept a couple of hives of honey bees until they became too heavy for me to lift.
I live in suburban Brisbane with my wife.
What I am looking for:

Good Evening Mike, Welcome to Brisbane Local Foods (BLF).

Here at the top of the page, you will find many GROUPS to join. One of these is the GARDEN VISITS, 2021 GARDEN VISITS CALENDAR I am sure you would enjoy visiting our member’s gardens. We have members who grow many 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. If you feel you are particularly adept in a field, you may like to add a new Group to our List or perhaps do a talk or demonstration at one of our GV. If a yes for the GV you might like to friend me, and we can see what we can do. We are always looking for new ideas.

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…..
