Find out all about food from bush plants
This is a workshop all about bush food.

Bush Tucker is coming to Trevallan.

Native plants are often beautiful in their natural surroundings and can also be delightful when you are landscaping your own garden. Many of these plants are beautiful in their own right but are even more so valued by indigenous Australians for cultural reasons.

In this workshop, The Mountain Man will be discussing the use of these beautiful and often edible native plants in your garden.

The Mountain Man will be leading this workshop. He will be talking about Australian native bush tucker plants and their growth and use in garden design. He will also highlight their many uses in our kitchens.

There are some really special ones of course and a few of these are as follows:

Finger Lime
Lemon Myrtle
Lilly Pilly
Bunya Nut

Then there are a few that are not yet well-known or popular such as:

Plum Pine
Bush Tomato

At this workshop, you will all look at how to grow your own natural, attractive and very productive bush foods.

Sunday 14th July 2019 from 10.00 am until 11.00 am. It will be held at the Trevallan Lifestyle Centre, 77 Fernvale Road, Brassall. The cost for this workshop is $20 and you can make your bookings at this link.

The Mountain Man is a third generation horticulturalist, who has a diploma and over fifteen years of experience. Rob aka the Mountain Man has a background in wholesale and retail nursery. He has also done some work with plant tissue culture and boutique gardening.
