Reconciliation Gardens 

How can we know these people if we do not know their stories? How can we walk together if we have not shared something with them? 

This is a very simple concept - the creation of reconciliation bushfood gardens throughout the country. Those these gardens, and their stories, can only be designed by Aboriginal people, the creation of the physical gardens can and should be a shared experience. 

How Can it Be Done?

The magazine is calling for expressions of interest from anyone who wants to be part of the Reconciliation Gardens program. At the moment, everything is needed - but mainly support and enthusiasm. A Reconciliation Garden Association will be formed so that appropriate funding can be sought and a representative committee formed. Our first step is to gain the approval and support of the people themselves. Is this an appropriate way in which we can come to work together? 

The next step is to get support, funding and sponsorship. Nurseries, local councils, Landcare groups, Rotary - we won't be asking for support, but suggesting they become involved. The magazine has begun a campaign to keep the media involved and intrigued and this will continue. The magazine has built up a species list and is linking this to various regions and groups. The magazine has also put together a small information packaging for interested people - so if you feel you can be part of the Reconciliation Gardens concept, please contact us for  further details.
