  • Grilled marinated meat and/or veggies with warrigal greens and polenta

  • Forestberry meringues dipped in pepperberry chocolate, served with wattleseed cream

  • Wattleseed tea/coffee/chai, lemon myrtle

Please note this menu is subject to change according to availability of ingredients.

Fiona will also discuss some of the domestic uses for a variety of cool climate natives and share her tips for growing edible natives in your back yard.
