Native garden in Central Australian community to provide a number of benefits

Date posted: 16 April 2014

A remote Central Australian community has recently made a special trip to the Alice Springs Desert Park to get some expert advice on the creation of a peace garden that will consist of native plants and bush tucker.

The garden will provide nutritious bush tucker for the community as well as act as a remediation tool for two local Warlpiri families that have been feuding.

Committee member Eddie Robertson says they are still figuring out what to put in the garden, but he has a few ideas. 'There are a lot of bush trees that are dying at home, that we need to bring it back to the community, so young children can look at what it is,' he said. 'There are a lot of bush tucker growing back at home, back in the Tanami Desert, and we need to bring it in so children go out on a trip somewhere and they can look at it and say that it's food.'
