SunButter couldn't be more stoked to be working with local not-for-profit Living Culture. Based on Boon Wurrung/Bunurong country (the Mornington Peninsula), Living Culture does amazing work teaching kids and adults in the community about bush tucker, bush medicine and First Nations culture.
The organisation is headed up by Gunditjmara Kirrae Wurrung-Bundjalung man and artist Lionel Lauch, who’s lived in the area since he was six years old. Living Culture’s guided cultural walks are journeys across sacred land where you’ll be introduced to edible fruits and weeds and their medicinal purposes, meet various animals and spirits along the way, and finish with a yidaki sound healing. The team also perform smoking ceremonies, host weaving workshops and visit schools to teach kids about traditional stories, tools and artefacts.
“I teach people about the importance of the land. The land can live without us, but we can’t live without mother earth,” says Lionel.
Our skincare range, which is inspired by Australian bush essences as well as the sea, has been created in collaboration with Living Culture.
We believe in giving back to First Nations people and custodians of this country, from whom we learned the benefits and healing powers of Australia's indigenous plants. Therefore, 10 per cent of profits from this range will be funnelled into helping Living Culture continue their super important work.
We’re also giving away greeting cards featuring one of Lionel’s beautiful coastal drawings — a representation of sun, sea and sky — with every SunButter purchase made between now and Christmas.
Whether you live down this way or not, we strongly encourage you to check out Living Culture and the awesome job they’re do at keeping Indigenous culture alive in this country.
