Native bushfoods are a great choice for sustainable living because they use fewer resources than many other farming crops. Native plants are perfectly adapted to the climate and soils of the Australian region in which they grow, reducing the need for additional water, fertilisers and pesticides.
Local foods not only travel fewer kilometres to reach us, but they also have a lower environmental impact due to the reduced energy and resources used for packaging, storage, and transport. Many Australian native bushfoods are wild-harvested and cultivated by local Indigenous families. So incorporating more local provenance foods into our diets is a great way to reduce our environmental impact and contribute to the economic and cultural wellbeing of Indigenous communities!
