from Mandurah Community Gardens
Marissa from Bindi Bindi Dreaming and Mark from Tucker Bush shared lots of information about indigenous culture, history, using native plants as food, medicine and ointments.
We used all our senses as plants were passed around for a closer look. Then the group made up of all ages joined in to plant 20 plants using compost made at the garden in the bottom of each hole. We now have a fantastic collection of Tucker Bush plants for every one to enjoy and use in their diet. Lots to learn about the ways to eat, cook or use these plants as an ointment.
Following the planting, people enjoyed a chat, a sausage sizzle and a tour of the garden. Mark made everyone happy having some extra Tucker Bus plants to purchase and take home to add to their garden.
A big THANKS to Sue for cooking the sausages and all the other members for their help today.
Thanks to the City of Mandurah for sponsoring this workshop and for the use of their gazebo which protected us from the rain.
