Win-win for sacred sites and job seekers

Town Council not keen to collaborate

 

A work program giving Aboriginal people accredited skills in horticulture is also in the process of  "cleaning up" 21 registered sacred sites around town, including this important caterpillar site at 6 Gap Road, opposite the hospital. Works supervisor is John Stuart Newchurch, an Arrernte custodian for Alice Springs. The program is the result of collaboration between custodians and the Olive Pink Botanic Garden, supported by funding from the Australian and Territory Governments. But the Town Council, being asked only for in-kind support, is reluctant to get on board. KIERAN FINNANE reports.
