Maningrida wild foods

Maniningrida Wild Foods is a social enterprise fully owned and operated by Bawinanga Aboriginal Corporation. The aim of the enterprise is to create economic sustainability for the community so that local people can stay on country, connected to their homelands and songlines. 

The harvesting of these bush foods is enabled through sustainable cultivation - using the knowledge handed down by ancestors over thousands of years, ensuring that the plants are only harvested when they are ready and knowing how much must be left behind to protect local ecosystems.

These practices are highly culturally significant as they enable the transmission of traditional knowledges from one generation to the next - continuing culture and tradition for years to come.
