Celebrating the Six Seasons of Sustainability
Bendigo is located on traditional lands of the Djaara People. Across our gastronomy region Traditional Owners work with six seasons defined by the natural cycles of the plants, animals and weather events. The focus is sustainability, abstinence instead of take. Each season such as; Giranul (Perch) and Wirrap (Cod) Time or Wanyarra (Water) and Gurri (Kangaroo) Time, is built around how to protect animals and plants in their time of reproduction and to limit harvesting so numbers can replenish. A strong lesson to be carried through to today.
