Activity 4

Bushtucker Garden

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people traditionally valued the changing of seasons to determine food sources and manage harvests. Seasonal calendar knowledge differs from group to group and on location, and does not directly reflect the European 4-season calendar recognised today. 

Research food that is grown locally to you and how it gets from the farm to the supermarket. 

Go to your local supermarket or market and take photos of the produce. Upload them and use an image tagging software such as ThingLink to write about where each food has been grown or imported from, to create an interactive food map for people to learn about where our food comes from.

Extension: Investigate how farming techniques in Australia have changed or improved over time.
