These beautiful books are a wonderful way for your little Jarjums to connect to, learn and honour the array of native bush foods we have available on the abundant Bundjalung land we walk each day.   

100% of the funds raised by the sale of this book go directly to the 'Bush Tucker Living Classroom' set up in Federal at the community preschool. 

The Bush Tucker Living Classroom is a wonderful opportunity to learn about our local bush foods with clear interactive signage. The area was set up for the children of the Federal Community Preschool as a meeting and learning place for the whole Community.

The main aim is to increase the natural habitat for local fauna and build an increased awareness and connection to nature. The garden is our way of showing our complete respect for the original custodians of the area. The ‘Bush Foods Garden Working Group’ in Reconciliation Week 2014 included the local Landcare group, Federal Preschool Director Mandala, local Widjabul custodians Auntie Dory Gordon and Karen Roberts, Byron Council and preschool parents . The garden replaced lantana with as has many of the local plant species from our surrounding Subtropical Rainforest – species which offer current and traditional cultural use.
