Paul, so pleased to hear about your opportunity to grow food in a 'public' space. That's a manageable size plot to keep looking attractive so that people don't complain. Healthy vegetables are beautiful to see and can be interplanted with flowers such as alyssum and calendula which are pretty and attract pollinators. I'm sure you'll inspire others and maybe someone else will want to join in your endeavour. Good luck!
Good Morning Paul, Welcome to Brisbane Local Foods (BLF). It is amazing what can be achieved in a small yard. Many of our members are testament to that, we look forward to meeting you sometime, perhaps at a Garden Visit.
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…..
