Learn Connect Grow Series: Forgotten Skills
We’re marking Boorloo Perth Heritage month by showcasing skills of the past that are secretly very cool and overdue for a comeback. Join us to hear from four Perthians passionate about a special skill they’ve developed, sharing how they came to it, demonstrating it, why they love it and why you should too.
Our speakers will share their passions for: Noongar Bush Medicine, Re-Wilding, Scything, and Foraging and Fermenting.
They’ll be plenty of time for connecting with like-minded folks in our candlelit courtyard, a seasonal curry by Chef Sophie Budd and a bar featuring City Farm’s own produce. Yum!
Optional extra: Wild Brewing Taster Session from 5 - 6 pm
Taste and learn to make creative and delicious pro-biotic non-alcoholic soft drinks using wild-captured yeast and local/foraged botanicals in this talk and demonstration. Wild starter cultures can come from things like pine needle tips and ginger, and we’ll explore flavours including Lemon-scented gum and ginger, Fig Leaf & Cinnamon Myrtle and Java Plum & Geraldton Wax.
You’ll get to taste a few wild-crafted sodas and bring a small jar to take home a bit of wild starter to get you going. Tickets to this extra session are $20.
This event is part of the ‘Learn Connect Grow’ series by Perth City Farm, forum style events showcasing local sustainability or community initiatives and providing space for people to connect. All part of City Farm’s purpose of building connected communities living sustainably.
This event series is sponsored by the City of Perth.
