Jake Cassar was born in Manly and is an Australian conservationist, bushfood teacher and trainer, reconciliation activist and singer song writer. From a young age Jake was more at home in the bush than in a class room, and became close friends with an indigenous family of the Nunawal people. It is through the Nunawal that Cassar learned the indigenous names of plants and uses, and was inspired to develop this knowledge further.
Jake is widely credited for the Land and Environment Court ruling against a proposal for development on Bambara Reserve at Kariong, Central Coast. He is best known as a passionate conservationist, teaching education of native plants and their dietary and medicinal uses and the importance of environmental preservation.
On March 13th, Permaculture Northern Beaches is hosting 'Bush Food and Medicine Tour' with Jake Cassar at Kariong, Central Coast (very close, just over the Brooklyn Bridge, Hawkesbury River).
Members are $15 and guests are $20. To go on the waiting list please email firstname.lastname@example.org
