We are very happy to announce one of the Reimagined VicHealth grants was successful for the Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander project Growing Plants for Country. The Koorie Homework Club families will be working with Matt King from Indigenous Partnerships/Integrated Catchment Management to learn about growing food & habitat plants to be planted on country and at Westvale Community garden. Each of the families will receive a propagation kit containing a grow house with potting mix and a list of seeds and under Matt’s guidance, will be planted out once they have reached sufficient maturity.
By engaging in this activity, with support, families may feel a greater connection to country and learn new skills and knowledge pathways.
