Bruce Pascoe on the complex question of Aboriginal agriculture

This is an thrilling exchange with Bruce Pascoe whose 'Dark Emu: Black Seeds' is changing the dialogue we need to have with the country's first people and their land.
'Always was/always will be...'much more so than you may think.
The cultural assertion implicit in Pascoe's research is an absolute game changer historically, environmentally and politically because it underscores the gross lie that underpins the invasion arrogance.

His review of aboriginal agriculture drawing on the early explorers will challenge your assumptions about this land and its first peoples.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
