Fruit­ful walk to see bush tucker

Isis Town and Country - - LIFE -

ISIS Bush­care mem­bers were re­cently treated to a bush tucker and ex­otic fruit or­chard walk at the Isis Win­ery

The walk was led by Ray John­son from Gin Gin Land­care, who was both knowl­edge­able and en­thu­si­as­tic.

Bush­care spokes­woman Margie Zea said mem­bers en­joyed an en­ter­tain­ing and in­for­ma­tive walk through the bush tucker gar­den.

“Ray gave loads of in­for­ma­tion on what the trees were, how they are used as bush tucker, what con­di­tions the trees grow in, how to prop­a­gate the trees and more,” she said.

“Later we walked through the ex­otic fruit or­chard, which was also amaz­ing and also jam-packed full of more in­ter­est­ing in­for­ma­tion.”

Isis Bush­care mem­ber Bet­tjoy Al­ley was thrilled to at­tend on the day and said the walk was a real eye-opener.

“I find Ray enor­mously knowl­edge­able.

“He is great at an­swer­ing ques­tions and he has an ex­cel­lent man­ner, field­ing com­ments from other knowl­edge­able mem­bers eas­ily,” she said.

“He knows nearly ev­ery species and ev­ery tree, what the fruit tastes like, when it is avail­able, whether it is easy to grow or not, where it was from.”
