Sustainable Garden Project

 

Overview

The Sustainable Garden Project aied to establish a sustainable space for dialysis patients, their families and the staff of Western Desert Nganampa Walytja Palyantjaku Tjutaku Aboriginal Corporation (WDNWPT). The project was 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 Sustainable Garden Project grew bush tucker, conventional vegetables that were used in the catering service and bush medicine plants used in bush balm products. The garden itself featured a pizza oven, a recycled tyre and rubbish seating area for workshops and events, and an aquaponics system.

The Sustainable Garden Project was made possible with the assistance of a series of public working bees and workshop and a number international and interstate volunteers.
