Four half day workshops benefiting 25 women have been delivered this year by the Northern Rivers Women and Children’s Services as part of the NRCF 2021 Recovery and Resilience Grant.
Workshops covered a diverse range of topics from bush foods and the indigenous way, to soil fertilisation and worm farming.
The project also increased participants' knowledge and skills in local food production in the context of our changing climate, while increasing social connection and resilience.
