Meet our speakers who will be part of the upcoming TAS Community Gardens Gathering:

Rees Campbell

Rees Campbell is Tasmanian by birth and attitude. She is passionate about the island she was lucky enough to be born on; and its extraordinary places, creatures, plants and people which inspire her. This passion has led her to explore and write about Tasmania’s edible native larder, both on the land and in the sea. Rees wants knowledge shared, as this leads to valuing, care and conservation, so she and her husband Col travel around Tasmania promoting Tasmania’s edible native plants. 

 Rees will give a short presentation on some of the wild food we have here, how to grow it in your own garden, what and how to harvest it… and most importantly, how to cook with it. Questions are welcomed. The presentation will be enhanced by plant and food samples to view and taste. Rees’ books Eat MORE Wild Tasmanian, and The Seaweed Supplement will be available for sale, as will a small sample of her range of wild food-inspired products… from Boronia Shortbread to Kangaroo Apple chutney.
