Tucker Bush River Mint was grown and dried at our very own nursery located in the Perth Hills on Whadjuk Noongar country. This bog-loving native herb was nurtured under the plant’s ideal growing conditions, and fed the very same nutrients we recommend to backyard gardeners.

We launched our line of native herb products to help introduce traditional bush food flavours to modern Australian cuisine. Part proceeds from every packet sold help fund the Tucker Bush Schools Program, cultivating a new generation of plant-loving Aussies with awareness and respect for this country’s unique natural treasures.

Native River Mint (Mentha australis) can be found in most regions of the country, often around rivers, bogs and other damp, shaded places.

Tucker Bush acknowledges the wisdom and knowledge of Aboriginal Elders both past and present, acknowledges the custodians of the land upon which our organisation operates, and pays respects to the Aboriginal communities of today.
