Men’s group plants ideas to engage
MEMBERS of an Aboriginal men’s group hope that a gardening project at Waterford Plaza will lead to more activities.
The Moorditj Keila Men’s Group helped with planting at garden beds around the shopping centre on May 26 alongside gardening contractors and the Southcare Men’s Empowerment Group.
The group received $2000 from Waterford Plaza to help purchase gardening equipment with the view to do more jobs.
Southcare family support co-ordinator and Moorditj Keila founder Garry Gower said he wanted Aboriginal people to take part in more community activities.
“The goal is to set up our own business and do gardening and landscaping around the community,” he said.
“The donation from Waterford is generous and I’ve been thinking about setting up the business for some time so it’s perfect.”
