Traditional Owner food strategy launched in Gunaikurnai country
A strategy has been released for Traditional Owners to restore their leadership of Victoria’s growing native foods and botanicals industry.
Minister for Agriculture Mary-Anne Thomas visited The Bush Café at Forestec, Kalimna West yesterday, to join with the Gunaikurnai Land and Waters Aboriginal Corporation (GLaWAC) and their partners from Wulgunggo Ngalu to launch the Native Food and Botanicals Strategy.
Traditional Owners have a plan to create a strong, authentic, sustainable bushfood industry to benefit all Victorians. It will guide recovery and reclamation of important knowledge and practices by mapping out the actions needed for Victorian Traditional Owners to restore their rights of biocultural species, knowledge and practices.
