Secrets to Growing the Yam Daisy
Ever walked around the bush and wondered what people ate out there? The reason you can’t see all the food is because it’s mostly underground! For nearly a decade, Steven Hoepfner has been researching native edible tubers such as the Yam Daisy (this once widespread bush tucker plant is mentioned in Bruce Pascoe’s book ‘Dark Emu’). In this workshop Steven will demonstrate how to create and maintain a Yam Daisy patch in the garden. Each participant will get to take home their own packet of Yam Daisy seeds to grow.
