Redland Bay State School awarded $5K Junior Landcare grant
Through a partnership with Lendlease and Junior Landcare, Redland Bay State School were recently awarded a $5000 grant for a Caring for Country – Bush Tucker garden project.
The project’s lead and school’s Indigenous Champion, Toni Ladd, said that the aim of the project is to create greater awareness of the importance of preserving the local cultural and environmental heritage of Redland Bay.
“The garden will act as an avenue for the school community to gain a deeper understanding of local traditional food production and plants used in traditional ceremonies,” she said.
“This project will be a great opportunity for us to collaborate with First Nations Elders, environmental organisations and other community groups in designing, constructing and maintaining a bush tucker garden.”
Congratulations to Toni, Alan and the team at RBSS and we look forward to seeing this project come to life. We will keep you updated with progress in future community newsletters!
