Announcing an Indigenous food production partnership between Burringbar’s Pocket Herbs and Tweed’s Traditional Currie Country February 5, 2020 – Posted in: Press
Pocket Herbs is proud to announce a partnership with Currie Country. The duo will cultivate, grow and develop the ‘Native Foods with Currie Country’ range for market.
“We are creating a knowledge base that will enhance the use of Native Foods and bring a new awareness, texture, and taste to tables” said Pocket Herbs’ owner Iain Reynolds.
“Our Indigenous partner represents one of the largest Aboriginal traditional owners of the Tweed Region, accessing ancient knowledge that will inform, develop and assist mightily in growing the range.”
Aboriginal nations have natural topographical boundaries throughout Australia. Currie Country is bounded by the Logan River (QLD) to the North, the Tweed River (NSW) in the South and West to the Albert River (QLD). These rivers flow North to South via the Rous River and define the cultural footprint ‘on country’.
“Pocket Herbs sits within these waterways and so will draw upon this symbiotic relationship to the region to develop Native Foods with Currie Country – providing exciting and bold food concepts based on ancient knowledge and the cultural relationship to the environment and balance for our bodies” confirmed Arabella Douglas, Currie Country’s representative.
“James and Ellen Currie had eight children who were all born ‘on country’, and their descendants still live here. We respectfully call these Elders the’Solum Eight’, and are thrilled to be able to grow Native Foods from the region unitising family knowledge and land lores”
“We are so excited to partner with Pocket Herbs”
