Like time itself, the Six Noongar Seasons represent a predictable timetable of foreseeable events. Nothing is unconnected, each change being influenced by the last. Animals, insects and people have always relied on this process, moving across the land directed by the weather and location of available foods. Plants flower at the same times of year, bearing fruit and reproducing according to this endless cycle. Recognising this beautiful connection and understanding the synchronicity of all these events that happen simultaneously gives us the knowledge to know what to do and when it needs to happen. We all have a significant place within this cycle and this powerful traditional knowledge is a key to our success.

 

Unfortunately due to COVID-19 we have been unable to present facilitate our Six Seasons Workshops with Marissa Verma. We thank Marissa for her ongoing support of our Innovate RAP and helping us deliver to these workshops, as we present an Educational Cooking Class centred around Djeran. Djeran season sees a break in the very hot weather, and the change in the season is evident in the wind with seeds, dust and leaves blown across the landscape. Flying ants can be seen cruising around in the light southerly winds of Djeran. You’ll also notice this season brings cooler nights with a dewy presence for us to discover in the early mornings.
