“GULP” project- Community Cook Book

Plans are in the making to make an amazing cook book through our community of local growers and lovers! We would like to collaborate with community organisations, community gardens and schools to produce a wonderful book, showcasing Darwin’s delicious delights.

Our project is called  “GULP”- Growing and understanding local produce. It will be a GULP Publication and run through our community group “Food Care NT”, with funding auspiced through the Environment Centre NT.

We have now started stage one of this project-

The project proposes to work collaboratively with different Darwin Community Organisations, to research and develop local food recipes. The project proposed is to produce a resource of garden produce based recipe cards available online and that can then be downloaded or printed- we would like to feature particularly Wet- Tropical ingredients. These recipes will be trialled and tested through workshops open to the community. Part of the funding to run this project has come from City of Darwin, Community Grants.

Recipes will be contributed from different members of community gardens and community organisations. The recipes will then trialed during workshops, involving a testing committee (consistent) and also open to the wider community (in capped numbers)

So we would like YOUR INPUT.

We would like to know if you are interested in-

-Contributing recipes to go into workshops

-Being on the testing and selecting panel (please be able to commit to attend all workshops)

– Attending workshops

-Hosting Workshops (as a food/ gardening/ community organisation)

-We would like some representatives from different organisations (MSK/ Mulch Pit/Lakeside Drive Community Garden/ School Gardens etc) to be in the tasting panel or hosting workshop
