Purple garden project

 

Overview

The Purple garden project aims to establish a sustainable space for dialysis patients, their families and staff of Western Desert Nganampa Walytja Palyantjaku Tjutaku Aboriginal Corporation (WDNWPT). The project is part of the Wellbeing program, a social enterprise project of the WDNWPT, producing bush balm products and catering, as well as arts/media projects.

The Purple garden project grows bush tucker, conventional vegetables that are used in the catering service and bush medicine plants used in bush balm products. The garden itself features a pizza oven, a recycled tyre and rubbish seating area for workshops and events, and has recently introduced an aquaponics system.

The Purple garden project has been made possible with the assistance of a series of public working bees and workshop and number international and interstate volunteers.
