Caring for Country & Country Caring for us
Jawan Farms are introducing our systems into Aboriginal Communities across NSW and QLD. Self ownership or community groups ownership. We are working with all groups to help establish the 100% Organic farming enterprise, as a commercial or home system.
When we talk about family health, it's not only about the obvious caring for families, it's also very much grass-roots country feeding pure whole foods in abundance. Talking medically, we we do not eat correctly, how can we possibly think clearly or live a long and healthy life. Whole 100% Organic grown foods, fish and vegetables, and fruits, gives our body the nutrition to be strong, mentally healthy and will also help stop cravings for the wrong fast foods which are all around us.
Mental Health is being discussed more and more these days, which we embrace and celebrate. But mental health doesn’t only mean feeling stable under stress or balanced when things in life go awry, it actually refers to the physical health of the brain overall. Pure whole foods, like fish and vegetables, also helps us highlight foods to avoid for optimal brain health, namely: pro-inflammatory foods like processed oils and sugars, alcohol, aspartame (found in diet sodas and gums) and caffeine.
When we eat correctly, we don't want these bad foods. It's all a matter of availability. Jawan Farms provided a entire community of this availability all year round. It will also provide another element for good, strong mental health, which is importantly, employment, financial incomes, and with a proud purpose.
Bush foods are edible plants that are native to Australia
As they've been harvested, cooked and used as medicine for tens of thousands of years by Aboriginal people and Torres Strait Islanders and are an important part of living cultures. Many are easy to grow in an Aquaponic system, like Jawan Farms.
WARRIGAL GREENS SPINACH (Tetragonia tetragonoides)
Aboriginal name(s) Warrigal (Dharug language, meaning “wild”)
You can use Warrigal Greens the way you’d use spinach, chard, silverbeet and bok choy. Like with spinach, the leaves are rich in oxalates, so should be blanched or cooked before eating. Warrigal Greens are Australia’s answer to English spinach.
Lemon myrtle (Backhousia citriodora)
Lemon myrtle, also know as Sweet Verbena, has traditionally been used by indigenous Australians for cooking and medicinal purposes. The oil has extremely high citral purity and is considered to be higher than lemongrass. It makes an excellent alternative for lemon flavouring in any dish, especially where you want to avoid the acidity of real lemon juice. Growing in an aquaponic system, they can easily be pruned to size, including Bachhousia anisata (aniseed scented).
Native mint (Mentha australis)
