Imagine a corridor of bush tucker plants all the way from the doors of Tandanya leading visitors from the centre outside to view an array of plants adorning the walls of the building and spilling out along East Terrace - where currently there are just a few dull trees and grass.
Eye-catching, decorative signs, offering interesting facts about the plants, will entice other passers-by too to visit the space. Wandering through they will be learning more about all the amazing ways bush tucker plants are used whether for medicine, food, weaving or dyeing.
They will be encouraged to smell and touch the diverse array of plants of every shape and colour. This could be a wonderful, informative, galvanizing community project. The council could use the beds to really showcase the very best bush tucker plants have to offer - a collaborative project with the local Aboriginal community, and horticultural students, all of whom can provide specialist knowledge. The inspiring space could also be used for public talks, art displays and music and dance performances.
