Bush Tucker Garden
Many of the plants selected will be native to Central Coast area, but the garden will also include species from further afield. As a bush tucker garden many of the plants have strong connections with Indigenous cultural practices, either as food or medicine.
Species might include Lemon Aspen, Black Apple, Finger Limes, Midgen Berry,
Macadamia, Davidson Plum, Lilly Pilly’s, Sandpiper Fig, Dianellas, Gymea Lily
The Bush Tucker garden will feature plants native to the Central Coast area, some of which were used in traditional food and medicine by Indigenous people. Our Aboriginal students have been working on Bush Tucker Garden designs for the area behind the library.
We acknowledge the Darkinjung people as the traditional custodians of the land the bush tucker garden will one day be situated.
