Film for food launch
Local filmmaker Mark Jago has made a one-hour documentary with local bush tucker man Koa Windsong. In this film, Walking Softly, Koa points out common plants that can be eaten in the Australian bush.
The documentary also helps dispel peoples fear of the Australian bush. Koa explains that fear and ignorance are our greatest enemy in the bush and having some basic knowledge of what you can eat in the natural environment turns a seemingly hostile landscape into a endless vegetable garden.
Koa also reveals his own personal journey and explains in simple terms why he has chosen this fascinating lifestyle.
Walking Softly will be screened and launched at the Winsome Hotel in Lismore next Tuesday, June 20, at 7.30pm. Entry is $5.
The DVD will be available on the night and are also on sale at Happy High Herbs in Nimbin and Byron, the Nimbin Environment Centre, Rainbow Wholefoods in Lismore and Nimbin, Murwillumbah Cinema and online at a www.big.com.au/koa.
