There is something magical about sharing stories of the edible and useful plants in our native landscapes. It adds a tangible value and engages people that may not instantly be inspired by our beautiful ecosystems.
I have had the privilege of being taught about bush tucker and native edibles by indigenous people on country as well as knowledgeable others in the field and I am constantly learning, looking, smelling and tasting my surroundings.
I also love to seed collect and forage and often do this for my work (with the correct permits) and love the feeling of freedom this brings.
Through my work with Greening Australia I am constantly inspiring people to connect with our native plants and particularly passing on knowledge about edible plants, edible to humans and wildlife alike.
My colleague Yvette and I will be presenting a talk and taste this year at the Fred’s Pass Show in their Paddock to Plate area. We will talk about various edible plants commonly found in our bushland, we will have plants to show you, some fruit to taste, including Kakadu Plum Super Smoothies and have a selection of plants that are great to grow at home so you don’t need to forage.
Paddock to Plate is at the Fred’s Pass Rural Show near Bees Creek. https://www.fredspassruralshow.com.au/event/paddock-to-plate/
Our workshop is at 3.30 pm
Tickets for the day are $15
The show has the great classics of food hall entries, stalls and talks plus an awesome musical lineup https://www.fredspassruralshow.com.au/music_entertainment/
