  • Gardens for growing fruit, vegetables, herbs, native and bushtucker plants
  • Learning about sustainable living by composting, recycling, and saving water and energy
  • Improving biodiversity and habitats in and around the local community
  • Learning about traditional ways of caring for Country, and the importance of the environment in Aboriginal culture.
