The GULP project aims to connect community through the sharing of culinary and gardening skills and ideas. We support people to use local produce grown in back gardens, community gardens and local farms. This reduces food miles, connects people to place, promotes healthy eating and allows people to share their knowledge cross culturally within the community, online and face to face.
The GULP community group engages in projects that aim to connect community through the sharing of local plant knowledge in growing, cooking and use of exotic tropical and native plants in the Darwin region.
This reduces food miles, connects people to place, promotes healthy eating and allows people to share their knowledge cross culturally within the community online and face to face.
The project works with many other community organisations in Darwin including community gardens, school kitchen gardens, Darwin Community Arts, multicultural groups, market stall holders, backyard growers and interested individuals.
GULP NT was established in 2011 and has hosted many community events, workshops, local food festivals and provided education materials to a wide audience living in the Darwin region
Thanks to the City of Darwin has already allowed the group to create a local food directory for the Darwin region and host bush tucker walks in the last 3 years. (2019- 2020)
In 2020 we have also hosted “The Top End Local food Challenge” and we are working on making short movies about growing food in urban spaces and a harvest calendar.
We aim to include anyone new to Darwin, the Tropics and its produce as well as those already passionate and knowledgeable. These connections to food through community are essential due to the remote location of Darwin and its reliance on trucked in food supplies and creating community is important in a vibrant, multicultural city.
We would love to hear from you if you know about and cook with local produce.
- You could send us a recipe, and we will try it out and publish it.
- You can share your tropical cooking ideas and skills, and we can involve you in the project.
We would also love to hear from you if you want to know more about the program and learn more about local produce.
