The Plant Heroes series, funded by an ANPC grant, continues with a fascinating video and podcast on Murnong – a type of Yam Daisy (Microseris scapigera). For the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung and other Aboriginal groups in south-eastern Australia, the Murnong has been an important cultural food source for thousands of years. But today only three populations remain in Melbourne, these rely on active management to keep them alive.
