Consider choosing a few Australian native plants and enjoy our bushfoods!
In this article for Maggie Beer Foundation, I share ideas for growing and using a few common bushfoods.
Growing bushfoods suitable to your region makes a garden ‘low maintenance’ and provides delicious tasting foods to enhance flavours and colours in your cooking. They can also be used for medicinal purposes and nature-based art activities.
Many varieties of bushfoods are grown as landscaping plants throughout our communities. Local councils understand the various uses of these hardy plants and the beautiful appearance they have growing through our streets and parks.
Whilst these plants are growing freely along our coastlines, within parklands and forests, we can also cultivate an environment suitable to grow many of these in our home and community gardens, which also helps to create a community connection.
