Description

Learn how to grow and use native food plants with Karen Sutherland from Edible Eden Design.


Native plants have been used as a source of food for thousands of years. Yet until recently native edibles have been largely overlooked and under-utilised in our backyards.


This class will explore a range of native edible and useful plants that are suitable for a variety of gardens: from urban backyards to schools to public spaces. Karen will share a range of real-life native food gardens and provide advice for using native edibles in your own garden.


Please note:

  • If you are unable to attend the live online class, a recording will be available to watch for three days following the session. Please register prior to the class to access the recording.
  • Karen is based in Victoria and this class may emphasise plants suitable for the southern states of Australia (Vic, SA, NSW, Tas). However gardeners from all over the world are more than welcome!
