EON has been delivering the Thriving Communities Program to the Mid-West communities of Meekatharra, Mount Magnet and Yalgoo since 2019.
These schools and communities continue to welcome EON’s visits and classes with great enthusiasm, energy and a keen desire for learning.
“All the garden beds are producing healthy produce which we have harvested for our cooking lessons or have sent home with the students. The garden and cooking lessons are going great!”- Project Manager, Mid-West (WA)
At MEEKATHARRA the garden is growing beautifully with five new garden beds added and new fruit trees planted.
The garden beds are regularly producing healthy crops which have been harvested, used in cooking lessons and sent home for students to share with their families.
EON’s Community Assistant Joanne Burgemeister is making a fantastic contribution to the program and the students are thoroughly enjoying both the Healthy Eating and Edible Garden classes.
Plans have been made to expand and revitalise the gardens at the Yulella Aboriginal Corporation in Meekatharra and work on this is now underway. Renewed collaboration between EON and Yulella presents an excellent opportunity for deeper community engagement and everyone is excited to see this project develop.
