Description

Australian native plants have flavour and aroma profiles unlike any others,and can be easily incorporated into your kitchen. As well, a wide range of them can be grown in Melbourne in pots or small and difficult spaces. In this class, which is ideal for those with limited garden space or even just a courtyard or balcony, you will explore the world of edible native Australian plants that are easy to grow in such spaces, attractive to look at and can easily add flavour and interest to your home-cooked dishes.All plants covered are suitable for Melbourne's climate, and will be discussed in terms of how best to use and grow them in your garden.

Learning about Australian native edible plants that could be grown in pots was fun and inspiring. Karen is an enthusiastic instructor whose passion for edible gardening is contagious. Being able to taste and smell various plants, together with hearing about how they can be used in the home, expanded my knowledge and increased my desire to try it myself. I am curious about Australian flavours and left with the confidence that I could grow some myself. I will start with the pepperberry.
