Indigigrow branches out


IndigiGrow continues to build and we are really proud that young Gadigal man Cameron Davison (pictured) has recently joined the IndigiGrow team. For a young person, Cameron brings a wealth of knowledge about native plants to IndigiGrow and we look forward to working with him, and senior horticulturist, Bruce Thompson, in the future. The aim of IndigiGrow is to build capacity to help facilitate Aboriginal people and businesses into all parts of the Bushfood supply chain. There are over 6500 Native foods that have been identified in Australia but less than 20 have been developed for domestic and overseas markets. The Industry currently generates $18 - $20 million annually across Australia but Aboriginal people's participation sits at less than 1%. Over time, our CEO, Peter Cooley aims to work with communities across Australia to ensure that Aboriginal people not only grow bushfoods, but also sell them. It's important that Aboriginal people maximise benefits from traditional food by building their presence in the bushfood industry. Native Australian bushfoods is going to be the next big food source both here and overseas and we need to play a prominent role in growing and supplying these markets. Please visit our IndigiGrow website (http://www.indigigrow.com.au) to find out more. Its still a work in progress but you'll be able to buy our bushfood plants online shortly so stay tuned but in the meantime they will be for sale at the Blak Markets this Sunday 16. http://www.firsthandsolutions.org/#!programs/c21kz
