Things we love – 286

The Nura Nanga Mai (country dreaming) Garden, located in the grounds of Glebe Public School provides a space for community groups to meet up and children to express themselves. While the garden has existed for over 12 years, it received a boost in funding from the City of Sydney Council last year to expand its services. Local Kanju Biri artist and Elder Kathryn Dodd Farrawell facilitated the creation of the garden’s artworks in 2003 when it was first planted, and she has now added two more to the garden’s extensive murals. The secluded oasis is used by Be Centre for play therapy, and for students at Glebe to learn about traditional plants from different parts of Australia.
