Tucker Bush Schools Program

We can share our knowledge with you by way of workshops, seminars and presentations we host in the community. To find our more, come follow us on Facebook by liking our page, Bindi Bindi Dreaming. Come explore Noongar Boodja.

For too long a time, Aboriginal people have been disconnected from the lands and waters. It’s vital that we, as the first Australians, share and teach our cultural knowledge of such an enriching culture that has existed since before recorded history. We now need to reconnect to all become caretakers.

We connected to the land and animals for our foods, health and healing for generations. Today, we have the opportunity to continue sharing our knowledge, so we can ensure the planet is well looked after today and into the future.

I believe every child and their parent has a role in taking care of the environment. To bring back our bushtucker species will be amazing. Together, we can make it happen. Marissa Verma

Why a Bushfood garden?

Did you know that Australia is home to thousands of native edible plant species? Yet most of the food we grow in our backyards today originally came from overseas. Despite having sustained generations of Aboriginal Australians for centuries, our native bush foods have fallen by the wayside.

We started Tucker Bush with a dream of bringing this land’s unique flavours back into the mainstream, so future generations can remain connected to a rich and vibrant history. We want to see a cultural shift towards a sustainable ecosystem, a secure and diverse food supply, and happier, healthier humans.

How students benefit from Tucker Bush gardens

  • Developing “nature smarts” from an early age through first-hand experiences.
  • Strengthening their understanding and awareness of food and biodiversity.
  • Practising teamwork, communication and critical thinking skills in an interesting setting.
  • Getting hands-on learning opportunities outside the sedentary classroom environment.
  • Learning about plants, soil, water, pests and beneficial insects.
  • Eating herbs and veggies they’ve grown themselves.

We would like to help your school
