Founded in 2005, EON is a WA based not-for-profit organisation that delivers a food and nutrition focused healthy lifestyle and disease prevention program – the EON Thriving Communities Program.
The Program is now established and proven in 16 Indigenous communities in Western Australia. We build edible gardens in remote Indigenous schools and communities for a secure supply of fresh food, and partner with them to deliver a hands-on practical gardening, nutrition education, cooking and hygiene program.

EON Thriving Communities Program
EON’s Thriving Communities Program is an early intervention nutrition-based healthy lifestyle and disease prevention program. It is practical and holistic. EON works in partnership with communities and their schools to develop and grow large edible gardens to provide a secure cheap supply of healthy vegetables and fruit. We deliver nutrition, cooking and hygiene education, to the school children as part of their regular school timetable, and to adult community members through practical workshops. Sustainability is vital, so we also provide horticultural training and job opportunities. We walk alongside the school and community for five years to ensure sustainability.
Grow ‘em up Fund
EON has established the Grow ‘Em Up Fund to raise $5m in 5 years with the aim to ensure that Indigenous children in remote communities no longer suffer third world health problems in a first world economy.
