Society & Culture
S3 E5 Caring for Country
In this episode I speak with two Dja Dja Wurrung men about what they are doing to connect people to country and in doing that help protect it.
Harley Douglas is project manager on a project called Walking Together. It is a four year project looking at two sites. They are doing surveys of the flora and fauna in the parks, introducing cultural learning points and also asking for community input about these two parks.
Uncle Rick Nelson has been taking high school boys out bush to connect to them and strengthen community and also strengthen their understanding of this place and the culture that connects them to it.
Saltgrass is produced in Castlemaine, on Jaara country, home of the Dja Dja Wurrung people. We pay respects to elders past, present and emerging.
