About this Event

Introduction to Bush foods and extending your harvest.

Bush food, also commonly known as ‘Bush tucker' has been a source of nutrition, and effective medicine for Australia’s indigenous people for thousands of years and has now become popular with gardeners, and even chefs.

In this workshop, Lakeland’s resident, and qualified horticulturalist Michael Gorman will provide an overview of Bush tucker plants and their uses with a focus on Western Australian species; including different types of edible fruits, berries, tubers, leaves, and seeds.

In the second half of the workshop, Anne-Marie McArdle, Lakelands resident, Ecologist and permaculturist will talk about extending your harvest, basic seed sprouting and yummy recipes to try with your home grown produce.

Please bring along a note pad and pen to take notes.

Tea, coffee and light refreshments will be provided.

This workshop is brought to you by members of the working group for the Proposed Lakelands Community Garden.

This event is proudly sponsored by the City of Mandurah
