Event Description

Veronica from Witjuti Grub Bushfood Nursery shares tips on how to create a bushfood garden so you can enjoy the ‘Wild Taste of the Rainforest’ in your own backyard.

For thousands of years, ‘bushfood’ plants have been an integral part of Australian Indigenous people’s diet and culture. Today native foods are being rediscovered by
contemporary Australians and appreciated for the unique flavours they offer. Veronica from Witjuti Grub Bushfood Nursery shares the knowledge and experience she’s gained over her 18 years involvement with native food plants, giving tips on how to create a bushfood garden in your own backyard.

About Veronica and Witjuti Grub Bushfood Nursery

Witjuti Grub Bushfood Nursery was established in 1996 by Veronica and Graeme White, specialising in quality native bushfood plants for the home gardener and commercial grower.

It is estimated there were upwards of 5000 different bushfood plant species across Australia utilised and harvested seasonally by Aboriginal people. For centuries 'bushfood' plants have been an integral part of our indigenous people's staple diet and lifestyle. Today these native foods are being rediscovered by contemporary Australians and used in ways as varied as our multi-cultured backgrounds.
