Deewin Kirim Aboriginal Corporation (DKAC) seeks two volunteers – to commence August 18
DKAC is an Indigenous non-government organisation who works in the Wadeye region of the Northern Territory. DKAC currently seek two qualified volunteers to assist two remote communities to establish food gardens for the purpose of community food production. Volunteers are sought to work full time with DKAC communities for 3 months, commencing in August. The selected volunteers will be provided with travel costs, basic accommodation and food for the duration of their placement.
The Traditional Owners of Emu Point and Woodycupuldiya have identified the development of food gardens as key goals in their aspirations for their communities. The gardens/community food systems will assist these communities to increase local employment rates, build food security through the wet season, and become more self-sufficient and less reliant on outside sources for food and income. The volunteer Food Production Systems Coordinators will bring in important skills and knowledge in the initial stages of the gardens, with a view to working with the community to see them run on independently.
