FoodFaith's inaugural educational session saw school groups and interested community members gather to learn about Indigenous food and sustainable practices.

Shannon Foster D'harawal Saltwater Knowledge Keeper spoke of her extraordinary knowledge of the foods and plants around us that many take for granted. The inspirational presentations allowed children to taste local plant foods that gave them new-found respect for our heritage. Meredith Kirton, FoodFaith's horticulturist, spoke about how we can integrate Indigenous foods into our diets. Participating schools included Currambena, St Michael's and Marist Sisters' College.

Watch out for more FoodFaith educational sessions which feature Australia's major faiths' and cultures' rich food and sustainability traditions.
