Matharkal homelands resource centre, Mapuru food cooperative

 

Overview

The Mapuru food cooperative project provides nutritious food for a remote Eastern Arnhemland community.

The Cooperative has been operating since 2002, giving the local population control of the food supply. The Cooperative also enables the school's teacher and students to develop a curriculum based on planning and running a cooperative to develop literacy, numeracy, health and enterprise understandings and skills. The Cooperative enables Mapuru residents to live on their ancestral estates where more than half the food consumed is collected from the surrounding land.
