Food plants study group

Indigenous people have been using native species as food for centuries but, with a few exception (such as Macadamia) few people in the wider Australian community have been aware of the culinary potential of Australian plants. Lack of availability has been a major problem but this is gradually changing and the Study Group hopes to play a role in expanding this availability.

Since the inception of the group numerous newsletters have been issued documenting the reports from members into cultivation issues in various climatic zones, propagation methods and natural occurrences of different species. Past issues of the newsletters can be downloaded from this site.

For more information about this study group, please see the ANPSA site:

Study Groups focus on researching and learning about specific Australian plants (usually a genus or a related group of genera).
