Who need access to engaging and entertaining bushfood insights in order to connect class content to Aboriginal culture in meaningful ways.
Aunty Dale provides a self-delivered, immersive, fun and engaging classroom presentation covering 18 ingredients that celebrate native Australian botanicals.
She combines traditional Aboriginal knowledge with decades of experience as a qualified Chef, Author and Adjunct Professor at the University of Queensland and brings a lifetime of passion specialising in growing, harvesting and cooking with bushfoods.
It's fun, it's educational and tastes sensational!
Aunty Dale presents information on the plants, where they grow, how they can be used in cooking and every day use, medicinal properties as well as weaving in her own stories and information about Aboriginal culture.

If you have a bushfood garden at your education facility, Aunty Dale suggests bringing in fresh leaves to follow along with her demonstrations. She shows fresh leaves in the program but it is always great to have the real deal to try.
Aunty Dale is a warm and charismatic bushfood educator and has been at it for over two decades - visiting educational facilities of all levels in south east Queensland and around the world.
She would certainly love to visit every educational facility in Australia but sadly there is only one of her, so she has developed this terrific resource to allow your classroom - wherever you may be - the chance to access her invaluable knowledge and experience a lasting positive connection with Aboriginal culture and fabulous knowledge she believes is her life's purpose to pass on.
Aunty Dale wanted to provide an affordable option to share this knowledge as far and wide as possible.
