The What’s Growing On Podcast is joined by Deb and Bruce French who is the founder of Food Plants International.
Both Bruce and Deb were born and raised in Tasmania, and had their worlds changed and minds opened when they went to live and work in Papua New Guinea.
Bruce saw that many locals were suffering from disease and malnutrition, because they didn’t have access to the right foods or the information to identify them.
Bruce saw that the knowledge was held by the older generations, and knew that he could assist them to pass the knowledge on.
55 years later, Food Plants International is the world’s largest database of edible foods across the globe.
The information provides people the opportunity to get the most nourishment from the plants that grow around them, and has made a difference to the three billion people who struggle to find nutritious food everyday.
