glad I found this website, and glad somebody is already doing something about the disastrous food supply situation in remote communities.
Every time I read something about the indigenous communities struggling I dwell in the idea of providing them with the opportunity to provide their own food (well most of the basic stuff). But then I can’t find anybody to pick up on this idea.
I was thinking more along the line of a community based business model, but that would depend on how the community is organised.
I work for the National Centre for Engineering in Agriculture in Toowoomba, and generally we do research related work so my boss is not too interested, but we got the Centre for Australian Indiginous Knowledge here as well at the University of Southern Queensland, and maybe we can stitch together something serious.
Well suppose you know better what I am talking about.
Looking forward to somehow get involved and get something going.
This is a really exciting, commonsense, grass roots initiative that will bring immediate positive outcomes, as well as skills for life amongst participants. We are hoping to link in with you in some way in south western NSW, and look forward to working together.
Unfortunately it is becoming apprahent that the food quality, food choice and food security issues are quickly becoming disastrous in non indigenous communities too. Hoping we can all solve this critical problem.
