Kowanyama Market Garden
June saw a project start to rejuvenate and bring back to life the old .
In conjunction with Ascent Training Jobfind is running an 8 week Certificate 3 in Rural Operations to equip local members of the community with the skills to turn the garden into a viable means to provide much needed good value fresh fruit and vegetables to the local Kowanyama community.
With the support of Kowanyama Aboriginal Shire Council Mayor Michael Yam the activity is showing great progress with at least 16 local people attending everyday. Not only will this activity give locals the opportunity to provide a positive contribution to the health and wellbeing of their community, they will also receive a nationally recognised qualification.
