Brisbane-based organic food information portal Cityfood Growers has been placed as a finalist in the small business section of Queensland’s 2011 Premier’s ClimateSmart Sustainability Awards.  

The Awards recognise the role of small scale food growers in promoting sustainability.  

The Queensland’s 2011 Premier’s ClimateSmart Sustainability Awards held on June 10 at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre was attended by Premier Anna Bligh along with Environment Minister Kate Jones.    

Cityfood Growers’ placement as finalist highlights the contribution of small businesses to promote sustainability in the state and recognises small scale food growers working to transform the food system to being more local, organic and sustainable, according to owner Peter Kearney.  

The Cityfood Growers head also said that the efforts of small food growers would make a significant contribution to reducing their food carbon footprint while raising awareness about action needed to abate climate change.    

Cityfood Growers was established in 2007 with the aim of providing people with services and knowledge to support the transformation of the Australian food system to be more local and organic.    

The Cityfood Growers website is a major organic food resource website in Australia and its recent release added growing information on 85 Australian bush food plants, bringing the total number of food crops on the site to 300. A 7-day free trial of the new Gardener subscriber site is available from the website.    

Cityfood Growers also offers organic and biodynamic gardening workshops in Queensland in addition to consulting services to a growing number of schools and early childhood services.
