Event Description

For thousands of years, ‘bushfood’ plants have been an integral part of our indigenous people’s staple diet and culture. Today these native foods are being ‘rediscovered’ by contemporary Australians and appreciated for the unique flavours they offer us.

Join Veronica from Witjuti Grub Bushfood Nursery as she share’s the knowledge and experiences, gained over 18 years involvement with Native food plants, on how to create a Bushfood garden so you can enjoy the ‘Wild Taste of the Rainforest’ in your own backyard.

Cost: $20 or $15 for Garden Members and Students. Spaces are limited so please book early to avoid dissapointment. Purchase your tickets here:

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.
