The Nugal-Nganjin Garden & Community Micro-forest

Donation protected
At Sunshine Heights, we are proud to have students who connect to each other’s cultures and who honour the connection to the land of the Wurundjeri People. As passionate Eco-warriors, they are slowly transforming a 1000 sq m plots from barred earth and grass to an edible micro-forest and biodiversity hotspot. Nugal-nganjin means ‘Ours’ and was named by Aunty Gail of the Wurundjeri Tribe Council to show the garden represents all our cultures.

Already hosting over 1000 native plants, our dream is to increase the biodiversity of our local flora and fauna whilst teaching our community about the importance of connection to place and nature. As we develop this space, we are adding edible plants that represent the 43 different cultures and language groups represented in our school community, ranging from Aboriginal bush tucker through to African, Asian European and Pasifika plants.

As this space builds and grows, we plan to build a community garden and potting shed to help support the local Kororoit Creek and surrounding spaces. For more information, please get in touch, and if you can, please donate to help this dream come to life.
