Pocket City Farms is joining forces with horticulturist Narelle Happ to teach the community all there is to know about native bush food — how to identify species, what's edible and how best to grow these plants at home. Happ has over a decade of experience in sustainable production and specialises in native gardens and permaculture design.
Tickets include tea, coffee and a taste testing of these local plants, as well as an introduction of how to use them in cooking and for medicinal purposes. Happ will also lead discussion on how growing Australian native bush plants can boost biodiversity, attracting native birds and bees to your garden and the community at large. Attendees are encouraged to bring along a hat and gardening gloves, as the day will include demonstrations of how to properly propagate and harvest natives.
