Backyard Banana Blossoms Workshop with Emma Lupin

Nightcliff Seabreeze Festival, Taste of the Top End, and COOLmob bring you two virtual workshops by Emma Lupin. 

These workshops are all about suburban survival, get to know edible tropical plants and grow them yourself!

Well it’s perfect timing for some suburban survival and critical thinking about local economies, community connectedness and growing your own food. Here in The Top End we can grow amazing plants all year that also have fabulous health benefits. These workshops are a short intro into just that. 

You'll learn how to pick and prepare a banana flower and make it into a fresh crunchy salad using local tropical ingredients.

Emma is an NT based multi-talented community member with a love for the arts and environment, people and nature and their interconnectedness. She has worked for many years in community engagement with a particular focus on Tropical edible plants and inspiring community members to connect to each other and our tropical home through local food; much of which she learnt while sailing and working as a cook in the Pacific islands before arriving by boat in Darwin in 2008.
