About Veronica and Witjuti Grub Bushfood Nursery
Witjuti Grub Bushfood Nursery was established in 1996 by Veronica and Graeme White, specialising in quality native bushfood plants for the home gardener and commercial grower.
It is estimated there were upwards of 5000 different bushfood plant species across Australia utilised and harvested seasonally by Aboriginal people. For centuries 'bushfood' plants have been an integral part of our indigenous people's staple diet and lifestyle. Today these native foods are being rediscovered by contemporary Australians and used in ways as varied as our multi-cultured backgrounds.
