Learning about the uses of indigenous plants is a natural pastime to most people who grow up in the bush. All pastoral people need to have some knowledge of what plants to eat including seasonal berries, which plants are medicinal all of which helps them to survive.
Here at Suyian Soul we do plant walks in various different habitats, along the river, up into the rocky escarpment and onto the grassy plains. After the rain there are various annuals that come up every year which are edible and can safely be made into a bush salad. During the dry season there are roots you can eat, various succulent plants are edible too. On Suyian two of the Aloe species are medicinal one is very good for skin allergies and the other Aloe is magic for sunburn!
