Gathering Bush Tucker Foods – 2022
Acrylic on Canvas – 38 x 91 cm
Our country has many plants that you can get bush tucker from. Wild plums, wild currants, bush potato, yam and bush banana, also Pandanus nuts and water lily seed….many more as well.
The knowledge of where to find these foods and what time of the year to gather them is passed on through our families, as we take our kids out bush each year to hunt for them.
