In 2010, Northam Senior High School applied for a Small Community Grant to produce a bush tucker garden on the school’s paddock. The school had a small parcel of land that was once a town landfill location. It was showing signs of erosion and aesthetic degradation as a result of more traditional animal husbandry practices as part of the school’s agriculture program. As a part of the school’s commitment to a focus on sustainability, it recognised a need to look into how Indigenous edible plants could be grown commercially.
