Northern Adelaide Senior College celebrated National Reconciliation Week by beginning construction of the Bush Tucker Garden and hosting a bush tucker BBQ for students and staff to enjoy.
National Reconciliation Week is a time when NASC students learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.
Jarrad Chester, our ASETO, began construction of two bush tucker garden beds between HUB and MEZZ buildings amidst wet weather.
Before the start of the summer season, it is hoped that native herbs, fruit, and vegetables will be planted and used as signature items in our Food and Hospitality course.
Reconciliation Week culminated on Friday with students and staff enjoying a bush tucker BBQ including snags of boar, venison, kangaroo, emu, and crocodile.
“It was delicious and splendidly cooked,” says Carolyn Woods, caretaker at NASC.
“I was surprised at the texture of emu, but I really loved the complexity of the boar.”
