& NATIVE PLANTS
The Bush Food group meets the third Saturday of every month from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon. All members are welcome, as are guests. Apart from maintenance and development of the bush food areas and stands of native vegetation on site, sessions focus on mutual learning and sometimes action research (research through doing) in a friendly and supportive environment.
Over the last few years WCG has been exploring bush food plants that will grow and produce in our climate. We have been doing this in consultation with members of the Gunditjmara Co-op and also some bush food professional growers.
Initially this exploration led to the development of a bush food garden near the HUB building and publication of the Bush Harvest booklet with support from the Isobel and David Jones Foundation and Warrnambool City Council.
