Newsletters and Reports
Regular newsletters are emailed several times per year to record activities and experiences of Group members in cultivating Australian food plants and reporting on field trips to various parts of Australia. The newsletters often include recipes using Australian food plants. The Group has also produced reports documenting potentially useful Australian food plants.
This 2-page brochure includes a list of plants to help you to create a great ‘Bush Tucker Garden’.
