Native herbs and bush tucker grant awarded
Sustainable Chippendale has been awarded a local community grant by the City of Sydney to help introduce medicinal herbs and native bush tucker into the roadside gardens in Chippendale.
The aim of the project is to promote and enhance the local community garden project in Chippendale in two ways.
- Firstly, by establishing native bush tucker plants in the existing community gardens to bring a native focus to the gardens.
- Secondly to introduce medicinal herbs into the gardens. In addition to being able to grow their own food, residence will be given the opportunity to grow their own medicines.
This process will allow residents to take an active role in health and well-being of the community and the sharing of knowledge from our indigenous heritage.
We would like send a big shout out to Alexis Clarke and Sarah Craig, the two local residence who applied for the grant. Alexis and Sarah, thank you both for all your hard work in putting this successful application together.
We would also like to thank The Community Grants program at The City of Sydney for awarding the grant with special mention to Ashley Heath and Linda Parry for their support and assistance throughout the project.
We are very grateful for all the ongoing support from our Lord Mayor Clover Moore, general manager Monica Bonrone and team at the City Of Sydney for their continued vision and support of grass roots sustainable initiatives in and around the city villages of Sydney.
