The Bush Tucker Garden at Pocket City Farms

  • Camperdown Commons, SYDNEY 31A Mallett Street Camperdown, NSW, 2050 Australia (map)

Do it for the birds, for the bees, and for your belly! Growing Australian native bush food plants is a great way to boost the diversity in your garden - for both the pollinators and your own diet. Perfectly suited to our climate, native bush tucker plants are often easy to grow, and provide beneficial relationships with other edibles. 

This workshop will teach you the background of our Australian native bush tucker, how to identify species, as well as how to grow, care for, propagate and harvest bush foods. You'll also have the chance to taste test some of our local species and learn how to use them in your cooking or for medicinal use at home.

Our teacher: Narelle Happ is a garden designer and horticulturalist who specialises in native garden and permaculture design. She has over a decade of experience and is passionate about creating ‘living’ spaces which are nurturing, productive and sustainable.

Suitable for: All ages. 

Provided: Tea, coffee, bush tucker taste testing and detailed notes. 

Bring: Paper, pen, hat + gloves. 

Cost: $75, book here
