Bush Food Search

This page lists the plants I’m hoping to grow in the Byron Bay hinterland. There is a focus on bush foods and edible plants, with the goal of growing plants that are productive, working towards a sustainable, self-sufficient lifestyle. I have a minor addiction to edible flowers and how to use them as garnishes, in salads and desserts, and in both cocktails and mocktails. Search here, or view all bush foods as a grid.
