Men’s group plants ideas to en­gage

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

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.”

Alain Mor­ri­son and Garry Gower take part in the plant­ing at Water­ford Plaza.
