The Overlooked Bounty – Free Food
An interactive map called the Overlooked Bounty has been developed by Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council to highlight fruit trees and other edible plants in public spaces in the region.
The Overlooked Bounty is a collaborative mapping project, providing foragers with the tools to track down and harvest free and nutritious food.
The Queanbeyan-Palerang landscape features a variety of edible plants in public spaces, including plums, figs and loquats. With contribution from the community, Council hopes to steadily build a map to link people with the edible food in their neighbourhood. The map will provide the location, the best time of year for harvesting and suggested uses.
