hope springs Indigenous Bush Tucker Community Garden
Our garden is an inclusive social space for folks to contribute to enhancing local biodiversity and to learn more about the culture and history of the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung Land. The design brief was to incorporate indigenous plants that have been used as food, medicine and tools/craft by the Wurundjeri family clans in the area.
We now have about 50+ plants of over 20 varieties that are growing slowly and are tenderly cared for in our garden.
As a garden group, we will continue to commemorate and celebrate significant Aboriginal events, like Reconciliation Week and NAIDOC Week. We are also hoping to run cooking demonstrations, jam-making classes and to serve community lunches using the ingredients from the garden. We would also like to learn more indigenous traditional methods of caring for land, and learn how various plants can be used in traditional and contemporary ways.
We welcome you to visit our garden on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month from 10am to 12.30pm. If you are interested in joining this group, drop in during our garden day, or contact JJ by email.
