Please note: This trail is currently only available as a self-guided trail. It will be available as an educator-led trail again from 1 May 2023.

Students are led through a trail at Adelaide Botanic Garden, investigating a range of living plants grown for food in Australia and across the world, including the tropics.

Key ideas throughout the trail include the connection between people, food, culture and the plants that create them; the influence on Australian culture of migrants and their food; the cycle of plants grown for food and their climate and sustainability, water use and food security.
