Bees - native and honey

Until I sold my home and garden recently, I owned two native bee hives of Tetragonula carbonaria and a top bar honey bee hive.While I'm am so far from expert at bee keeping it's not funny I do love to learn more about bees and the benefits they provide us.When I was a child at primary school we had our own honey-bee hive and the local bee keeper would come by regularly and we would all gather around while he showed us how to look after them and gather the honey.We have members on BLF who are…See More

Prep-steaders

I wanted to make a group for those who might be a bit more serious about self-reliance. I didn't want to use the "prepper" tag because it has become associated with gathering guns and stockpiling heaps of dried/canned goods.  The farm/home-steader tag seemed a lot more appropriate.  The combination of the two, even better.  In 2014, I lost power for over a week in the floods.  I always knew we flooded but it was enough of a shock to make me realise that Brisbane isn't immune to delayed…See More

Hi Everyone

Just joined, looks a great site to be involved in, hope I can contribute some worth while stuff that others might get something out of.

For my first foray into the site I thought I would post a pic of the latest addition to my garden, top bar…

Good Morning Ron, Welcome to Brisbane Local Foods (BLF). Sorry for the late welcome, had my hands in the garden from Dusk till Dawn last couple of month's, and thus too tired to do anything once I was inside. Pleased to see others have welcomed 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 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…..
