    Special presentation by 

    Mark Tucek of Tucker Bush plants 
    and
    Marisa Verma of Bindi Bindi Dreaming.

    Mark and Marisa are dedicated to having native Australian plants in every garden including school gardens.  They have collaborated in the Tucker Bush Schools program, with the aim of re-introducing Australians to their indigenous plants and foods.

    Why a bush food Garden?

    Did you know that Australia is home to thousands of native edible plant species? Yet most of the food we grow in our backyards today originally came from overseas. Despite having sustained generations of Aboriginal peoples for thousands of years, our native bush foods still come second to exotic plants.

    We started Tucker Bush with a dream of bringing this land’s unique flavours back into the mainstream, so future generations can remain connected to a rich and vibrant history. We want to see a cultural shift towards a sustainable ecosystem, a secure and diverse food supply, and happier, healthier humans.
    Marisa and Mark - Tucker Bush Schools Program

    We will also have some Tucker Bush Plants available for sale, these plants are great for attracting pollinators!
