Indigenous Planting

Indigenous Planting

The Melbourne Food Hub is situated on the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. Acknowledging the skill, respect and deep knowledge of the land which first nations people have practiced for at least 60,000 years is urgently needed to transform our food systems. 

This includes planting indigenous edible and non-edible species to regenerate land, importantly, with the guidance of the indigenous community.  Plans to develop an indigenous garden are underway and resources will be developed alongside this project. 


The Revival of Pre-Colonial Australian Agriculture

In recent years, there has been a flood of interest in Indigenous agriculture in Australia. Rightfully so, we must acknowledge the sophisticated and advanced system of agriculture that has existed here for tens of thousands of years.
