Bush Tucker Garden installation at NASC
26 September 2022

Northern Adelaide Senior College (NASC) has taken a meaningful step towards embracing Indigenous culture and sustainable living with the installation of its first bush tucker garden between the HUB and MEZZ buildings.

This vibrant addition to the campus not only enriches the natural surroundings but also provides an educational platform for students to learn about native Australian plants and their traditional uses.

The bush tucker garden is a testament to NASC’s commitment to cultural diversity and environmental awareness. Indigenous plants like karkalla, Warringal spinach, and lemon myrtle have found a home in the garden, offering students a chance to connect with the land and appreciate the rich heritage of Australia’s First Nations People.

“The bush tucker garden not only beautifies our campus but also serves as an educational resource,” says Bradley McCarthy, ATSI SSO at NASC.

“It deepens our students’ understanding of Indigenous traditions and strengthens their bond with the environment.”

This green oasis stands as a symbol of NASC’s dedication to fostering cultural appreciation and sustainable practices, inviting students and staff alike to engage in a holistic learning experience while nurturing a harmonious relationship with the land.

Northern Adelaide Senior College are accepting 2022/23 year 11-13 enrolments throughout the year.
