Want to learn more about bush foods and our indigenous culture while enjoying a delicious brunch?

Watershed Landcare would like to invite you to join us for a Bush Tucker Brunch.

We have invited Sharon Windsor from Indigiearth to prepare menu of "Modern Australian Native Cuisine" and give us an insight into how Australian native produce was collected, prepared and cooked.

Ms Windsor, a Ngemba Weilwan woman of Western NSW, grew up collecting bush fruits, catching yabbies and eating bush foods in the wild.

Ms Windsor is passionate about bush foods, educating the wider community about Indigenous Australia and culture and, through her small successful business Indigiearth, she showcases Australian native products at their best.

Founded in 1996, Indigiearth now provides a wide range of Australian native meats, herbs and spices and other ingredients to cafes, restaurants and caterers.

Our bush tucker brunch is a different way for you to learn about our indigenous culture and enjoy a delicious brunch prepared by Sharon.” said Claudia Wythes, Watershed Landcare Coorinator.

“Sharon will also give a bush tucker talk, display bush tucker foods and ingredients and discuss traditional ways of hunting, gathering, cooking and bush medicines.” she continued.

The Bush Tucker Brunch will be held on Sunday 23 October at Augustine’s Function Center, starting at 9:30am and will finish around noon.

The menu will include kangaroo and crocodile sausages served with native chutneys, grilled bush tomato, scrambled eggs with sea blight & samphire, native fruit muesli with lemon myrtle yogurt and damper with native jams and wattleseed cream.

It will be a great social activity and is open to everyone, not just Landcare members. Get together a group of friends, bring along the kids and enjoy a relaxing Sunday brunch. Good company and good food – what more do you need?” said Ms Wythes.

This is a great opportunity for people to put their toe in the water to find out more about Watershed Landcare.” she continued.

Tickets are $20 for Watershed Landcare members and $30 for non-members. Booking are essential and tickets available for purchase from the Central Tablelands Local Land Services Office, 112 Market St, Mudgee.
