30 Aug Bush Food comes to Mapleton
Part of the Development Approval for Outdoor Education activities on QCCC Mapleton’s recently purchased farm property is to establish natural buffers which will connect some missing pieces of the Sunshine Coast Local Ecological Linkage. Ground prep and planting is underway on a 40 metre buffer to connect two rain forest areas using natural bush food species from the Blackall Range.
The farm will double up as a living classroom for The Triballink Activity centre, a year-round touch, taste and feel food trail, with reflective spaces and talking circles surrounded by local food staples such as lemon myrtle, finger limes, blue quandong, sandpaper fig, Davidson’s Plum & native ginger, tumeric and raspberries.
The harvest will also be directly paddock-to-plate for evening time functions in our Rainforest Arena.
