And for Justin Case... if you go down to the very bottom of your profile page, you will see all the text, as opposed to the cut-off text you see at the top of the same profile page.

Here's a link to Elaine's Post about GK... It might be the post you were studying.

Many members have this one and it grows wild around the place (as a native to many countries including Australia)... I still found it best to start with a known supplied one and I have some good photos of it's unique flowers in Elaine's post above. Runner's from the same plant have been distributed at garden visits. 

There may be a member close by you on the south side with Centella asiatica... AKA Gotu Kola/Indian Pennywort/Arthritis Herb.

If you decide to attend a GV, send a request for some of the plant on the particular GV event (in comments). I've never seen requests go unanswered on BLF.

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

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

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.)
