The Bush Bean is a stable food source that is collected when the bean dries and the seeds or peas fall out of the shell. After the women collect the seeds they cook them over a fire. Dreamings associated with bush foods are important story telling for the younger generations.

This is a teaching tool that provides information on how and where to find bush foods, (including the bush bean), and the best time to collect them and how to cook them.

The Beans are represented by the colourful circles, with the concentric circle dot work that forms in the background of the canvas are the various locations of the waterholes.
