All of our projects will be run by the lead Raba farmer and expert who will also engage people from the NDIS and mental health sector to helpupskill and create inclusion.
We would also so like to engage the school traineeship program to make sure that
we have a future generation of farmers.
Under phase one we will build 25 community ‘garden beds’ which can be rented and utilised by the public.
Our crew will be available to coach and mentor those with budding green thumbs!
BUSH TUCKER AND FOOD FOREST
Using agroforest techniques, we will re-forest the area with a wide range of indigenous edible bush tucker and medicinal plants.
This will be done in collaboration with the First Nations
peoples of the area.
Once established, this garden will be used as an educational resource and the harvest sold locally. We will include a traditional gathering circle (bora ring) and a fire pit for sharing the story.
Starting with four paddocks, these will both be used by RaBa and rented out to grow food and feed for the chickens and rescued boy cows.
This will showcase the integration of animals into the farming system and allow the community to have a consistent supply of free range and organic eggs.
