On Sunday 23rd June Sustainable Table are hosting a unique and inspiring event that will teach us all how to grow and cook with Australian native plants. The event will explore why native edibles are an important part of the sustainable food movement.

Warm yourself with bush tea and wattleseed cookies and take a guided educational talk and tour of the CERES native gardens and nursery. You’ll learn about the environmental and health benefits of growing native edibles and get a run-down of what to grow and how to grow it so that you can enjoy our native cuisine in your own home.

Then enjoy an aperitif and canapés before indulging in a native two-course Sunday roast lunch – think wild bush spices, succulent wallaby and nourishing native greens.

Founder of ‘Outback Chef’ Jude Mayall will demonstrate how to cook with native foods. You’ll also learn how to mix fun and creative drinks using native botanicals and hear from the makers, growers and change makers.
