"Sarah, You mention that you have a slab of concrete out front, well you could plant some cheap umbrella trees or fast growing plants in half blue wicking drums.  These should create shade and make an area to keep some tree pots. You could fill…"

"Despite your hot space, experimenting with potted herbs is a useful training exercise. Parsley, coriander, spring onions, chives...are easy care. It is worth it at least so that you can relate to watering needs and soil types. I had a veg garden…"

Doug Hanning commented on Sarah's blog post Help me plan/dream
"You seem to be motivated Sarah, that's very important. We grow 90% of our veges and almost 200 fruit trees on 1/2 an acre, and no matter what anyone says it requires a bit of blood sweat and tears(worth every drop). I agree with Dave, its good…"

"Attend the garden visits for BLF -- check out other kitchen gardens that way. Instead of starting with what you 'could' grow, start with what you eat already...or would like to supply yourself with. You can waste a lot of energy trying to…"

Good Afternoon Sarah, Welcome to Brisbane Local Foods (BLF). Sorry I am so late in welcoming you.

Here at the top of the page, you will find many GROUPS to join. One of these is the GARDEN VISITS, 2020 GARDEN VISITS CALENDAR  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. 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…..
