Luke Farr with Walgett School students
Aboriginal Peoples Majority Schools and Communities Join OPEN Schools bringing thousands of years of indigenous knowledge on sustainable community development, farming, aquaculture and forestry. From the oldest surviving man made structures on the planet (Brewarrina fish weirs/fish traps) to growing bounties of endemic and indigenous food crops in the driest of climates, this native culture has a lot to teach agroforestry experts and OPEN students worldwide.
Led by Helen Clarke of Knox Grammar, Aboriginal Agriculture specialist Luke Farr, and Bruce Pascoe, author of Dark Emu (an Australian National Best Selling book about Aboriginal Cultures lost histories and their enduring contributions to sustainable communities).
