The Aboriginal Pathway
THE STORY STARTS AT BOOKABIE
The small outback Aboriginal township of Bookabie on the edge of Australia’s Nullarbor Plain, sets the scene for the members of the Scotdesco Aboriginal Community to demonstrate their vision for a solution to the rest of the World by putting words into action by Greening the Earth.
“THE GREENING THE EARTH PARTNERSHIP WITH THE SCOTDESCO ABORIGINAL COMMUNITY IS A VISION OF HEALTH AND PROSPERITY FOR THE FUTURE WELLBEING OF OUR COUNTRY AND ITS PEOPLE."
“It draws from spiritual, physical, social and cultural connections and the natural affinity and knowledge that Aboriginal Australians have of the land going back some 60,000 years, as the World’s oldest living culture.
“The cropping and manufacturing programs foster new employment, business, mentoring and training opportunities for Scotdesco and the regional community which over time, will deliver improved skills and the profitable returns and economic self-sufficiency in a manner that is dignified and respectful of Aboriginal history, culture and traditions”.
