Recent years have seen Australian native foods increase in popularity globally. In this virtual excursion, students will explore the different types of plants used and eaten by First Nation peoples, including their methods of collection and processing. Students will also learn how these foods can be used for more than food, for example medicine, art & artefacts, just to name a few.
- Students will discuss the impact of settlement on the environment and local Aboriginal peoples such as the Gadigal
- Learn about traditional methods of hunting and gathering local food sources, as well as the importance of producing food and fibre sustainably
- Discover plants that are used for food, medicine, tools, weapons and shelter by Aboriginal people
