Postponed: BRAWL by the River

  • - (AEST)
  • Bega River and Wetlands Landcare Inc
    Bridge Street, Bega NSW 2550, Australia

Postponed due to the COVID lockdown.

Bega River and Wetlands Landcare (BRAWL) is hosting a family-friendly, community engagement event fusing bush tucker education and re-vegetation on the Bega River with indigenous plant species. Participants will collect, soak & grind seeds on grinding stones, to cook up a damper for morning tea. This will be followed by a discussion on the agro-technologies used to grow commercial foods locally from indigenous plants, and tree planting of 100 seedlings. The activities will be led by Indigenous educator.

There will also be an opportunity for participants to examine the impacts of smut fungus on weed species.  You can read about the partnership between BRAWL and CSIRO to introduce leaf-smut fungus to control Wandering Trad along the Bega River.
