Show Garden – Tucker Bush

The Tucker Bush show garden is a demonstration of Australia’s unique palette of flora, showcasing nearly fifty species of edible native plants all in a 10m X 10m area. The display features bushfood notes by Noongar cultural expert Marissa Verma of Bindi Bindi Dreaming, design by Lisa Passmore of Inspired By Nature, landscaping by Simon Pawley of Sustainable Outdoors, and waterscaping by award-winning aquascaper Tony Green of Think Green Waterscapes. Lighting is by Perth Garden Lights.

Mark Tucek started the Tucker Bush project with a vision — to restore a local flavour to our food and culture, to help young Australians grow up with a stronger connection to nature, and to influence a cultural shift that contributes to preserving our food security and biodiversity.

Marissa Verma is Perth’s finest Aboriginal cultural consultant. Knowledgeable and backed by Noongar Elders, Marissa shares Aboriginal culture with the wider community through her successful 100% Aboriginal-owned and operated business, Bindi Bindi Dreaming. Founded in 2000, her venture has delivered authentic guided tours and cultural experiences showcasing the unique Noongar culture of this region.

Lisa Passmore is a third generation horticulturist, stemming from a long line of professional plant lovers. Her twin passions of horticulture and art seeded her landscape design business, Inspired By Nature, an international garden design consultancy.

Lisa holds a Diploma in Horticulture, a Diploma in Permaculture, and a Cert IV in Training and Assessment.

Simon Pawley started Sustainable Outdoors in 2004 with the aim of increasing the use for West Australian plants on verges and medium strips that would otherwise be planted with water guzzling lawn. We have now converted many hundred verges around Perth into thriving waterwise native gardens that also attract bird life, reduce maintenance costs and create an amazing entry statement for any home.” — Sustainable Outdoors

Tony Green from Think Green Waterscapes is W.A’s leading “Aquascaper” and won “Best in Show” and a Gold medal from Perth GF 2019. “Our business ethic is to use local, natural and recycled products wherever possible so we often have a high proportion of elements like natural rocks, water, timber decking and compacted gravel in our gardens. Our projects are also very plant-focussed using a wide variety of native plants to create gardens and watergardens with a lot of visual interest and seasonal change.”
