Kylie commented on Brisbane Food City

Hi Rebecca, thanks so much for your comment. I must have missed it when it came through amid covid-19 lockdown! We wholeheartedly agree with you and our refined vision certainly includes all of those elements you mentioned - an integrated animal system, along with food forests for shading etc. Our Vision takes place in a city and so we don't envisage that grazing animals will be part of the Vision, however, know that chickens and goats certainly will be.

Kylie commented on Brisbane Food City

Hi Matthew, thanks for your comment. You raised some good questions. At this stage, we hadn't planned for the urban farms/ market gardens to be for community members to grow their own crops, since we have a number of community gardens already around the city, yet only one urban farm. We do anticipate though, that with more involvement in the farms, that people will become interested in growing their own food. We're lucky in Australia in that a lot of people still do have room on their property for a garden, however, this is changing over time with houses now taking up most of the block!
