Community Demonstration Garden Project
We were approached in 2017 by RISE (formerly Jobfind) who wanted their work program participants to get involved in the demonstration vegetable garden. This was a great chance for a partnership and we offered to provide training from our volunteers on all aspects of the garden.
This occurred a couple of times over second half of 2017 and formed the foundation for our 2018 project ( more info to come).
Kowanyama Youth mentoring trip
July school holidays was a great opportunity to take some of the kids we mentor at boarding school out on country for some holiday fun and leadership mentoring. Had some great talks about relevant issues, helped the boys get some wallaby and pig, taught the boys how to cook their bush tucker with some healthy greens from the community garden and even better the boys got to show off their skills and teach us a few things too like skinning a wallaby.
