Aboriginal Agriculture

Australian Aborigines have been labelled as hunters and gatherers for 220 years but pioneers and explorers saw a very different economy. Aborigines were growing and harvesting a huge variety of grains, tubers and fruits as well as building large and complex aquaculture systems. Why did we not learn this in our history? Bruce will reveal the observations of Sturt, Mitchell, Grey, Batey and others and discuss how contemporary Aboriginal communities are establishing market gardens to recover these foods.
