Presenters Strip


Take a deep dive into bush
food and ecology

The Quorn Community Landcare Group invite Quorn Quandong Festival goers to join an amazing line-up of speakers in the Town Hall on Saturday and at the Pithi Kawi Bush Food Garden on Sunday of the Quorn Quondong Festival weekend.

ABC’s Gardening Australia presenter Sophie Thomson will return in 2025 to host and facilitate a range of speakers to discuss selecting, growing, harvesting and processing native food plants in low rainfall regions.


Whether you’re a farmer, gardener, community volunteers or local business with an interest in native foods – there is something here for everyone!

The Pithi Kawi Walking trail features the Quorn Bush Food Garden.  Designed and planted only three years ago, the beautiful parklands showcase a large variety of local native plant species of cultural importance to our local community. 


Garden talks and presentations will include topics of native bees of the Flinders, composting and worm farming, creating a cultivar, on-farm bush food production, water wise gardening, sandalwood propagation and Nukunu cultural knowledge.

The weekend will provide plenty of opportunities to listen to a fantastic range of knowledgeable speakers. 

Guest speakers at the 2024 Quorn Quandong Festival are sponsored by the SA Arid Lands Landscape Board and Quorn Community Landcare Group, supported by FRRR through funding from the Australian Government's Future Drought Fund. 

In conjunction with SA Arid Lands and the Pithi Kawi Bush Food Garden, this curriculum of events is fascinating and informative.
