Kickstart Arts: Creative Exchange presents

Discover Bush Food and Urban Foraging

Learn when and where to look for native and non-native ingredients and how to include them in your everyday cooking.

Humans, by nature, are hunter gatherers. We have become so disconnected with our food through daily life, seeking convenience over sustainability, flavour and health. Foraging is important because it helps us reconnect with our food, and land.

You will receive an introduction to native and non-native ingredients, their flavour profiles and how to use them. We will discuss how to identify plants that you can forage that are currently in season and are available, and discuss sustainable foraging.

Together we will cook two dishes using seasonal locally sourced ingredients and eat together (please state if you have any allergies or dietary requirements when you book your ticket).
