Have you ever wondered what was eaten in Burnside in the past? The available vegetables, fruits and meats? The types of farming techniques and food storage? Derek Bransbury, President of Burnside Historical Society outlines this before introducing Margaret Ford OAM and ‘The Story of the Olive in South Australia: from the Buffalo to Beaumont’. The olive has been an essential commodity for centuries, a source for medicine, food and even waterproofing! In 1836, olives arrived in South Australia aboard the HMS Buffalo. Margaret weaves the story of olives from the scandals, myths and a bottle label. Light refreshments provided. Bookings essential.
