Renaissance in Aboriginal agriculture in western NSW
[University of Sydney]
New collective to end exploitation of Aboriginal products
[Tyne Logan, ABC]
In a glorious mess of flour, culture and ideas, a group of 20 Aboriginal people representing six communities in western New South Wales met on Gamilaraay Country at the University of Sydney’s Plant Breeding Institute outside Narrabri last week.
The new collective, called Trading Blak, seeks to promote those businesses while educating consumers and non-Aboriginal business owners about the cultural responsibilities in giving back to the community when selling Aboriginal products.
