Challenges

🌟 Unearth references to Indigenous agricultural practises by searching archival records

There is increasing interest in foods that were grown on this continent for millennia, awareness of Aboriginal farming practices, and the history they reveal about Australia pre-colonisation. This challenge is to search Trove for descriptions of land care, cropping, harvesting and food storage, to add to the bank of knowledge of Aboriginal farming.
