“I've always been interested in bush tucker and indigenous foods … when I retired, I had time to have a go growing some myself.”
Aunty Julie McHale is an adopted Indigenous elder living on Dja Dja Wurrung country, who has grown more than 90 different types of native Indigenous plants on her property.
Lemon myrtle, native plums, wattleseed and finger limes are all on offer for the tasting at Aunty Julie’s, and for sharing with others.
“When you’re in a group and you’re sharing food – that’s when all the yarning happens.”
Find out how Aunty Julie, and the group of Indigenous women she works with are using their local library to share knowledge of indigenous plants and foods with the wider community.
