Indigenous medicine and food gardens in schools

The Eingana Garden Project is a health and play program enhancing the well-being of preschool children while promoting links between the preschool centre and the greater community.

Each community designs, builds and tends a garden with traditional bush tucker and a vegetable patch. Lessons on good nutrition and health are woven in with community days where Aboriginal elders tell stories and all sing songs together. In addition, children are given a plant to take and care for at home.
