First Nations Peoples have been using wattle seed for thousands of years. They pounded the seed and used it as a flour to make a type of damper. Their traditional knowledge, passed down through the generations, enabled them to know which wattle varieties were edible and which were not. There are close to 1000 species of wattle in Australia and not all are edible. We use the species Acacia victoriae for our ground Wattle Seed.
