This year OSF began working closely with Pundi Produce in the Riverland of South Australia. Pundi grow commercial quantities of native herbs and a range of fresh vegetables, using aquaponics, for SA markets. Pundi are keen to expand both on their farm in the Riverland as well as plant wattle trees to harvest sees for commercial applications. Following several site visits, including the OSF Board, we have helped Pundi start this journey as well as link them to other Foundation farmers in SA & the NT.
