We’re excited to announce that Australian Design Centre has been shortlisted for the NSW Government’s My Community grant program with a proposal for a landscape designed Indigenous Edible Garden outside the entrance to the Centre.
Do you live in the Sydney electorate? We need you to help us to vote for the project by 15 August.
Indigenous Edible Garden project is an educational garden offering a resting place in a culturally significant location to increase biodiversity, filter the air and buffer the William Street traffic noise. With ADC’s Art and About project Gadigal Mural in Barnett Lane, the garden will bring back to the area the spirit of the traditional custodians of the land.
If successful ADC will work with a range of partners including the local community, IndigiGrow - Australian Bushfoods, ASPECT Studios and the City of Sydney. The garden beds and existing courtyard will be redesigned with new seating and lighting.
Why we would love your vote for this project?
- Increases well-being in the local community by greening the urban space.
- Reduces pollution and builds the biodiversity.
- Creates connections to culture in a community meeting space.
