Update: Thank you to everyone for so much! We are so moved to reach our target in just 8 days with the support of over 1265 people! We are now able to take up this incredible opportunity to purchase this small parcel of land. Any extra funds we raise will help cover the stamp duty, council rates, a compost toilet… We will update you all on our plans and progress soon.
An incredible opportunity has arisen to purchase some culturally significant land back for the Nalderun Aboriginal community of Castlemaine, and so we can protect Me-Mandook Galk – the beautiful grandmother tree.
“This tree would have been around when my ancestors were around”.
– Uncle Rick Nelson, Dja Dja Wurrung Elder
Join with Mamunya – the friends of Nalderun Education Aboriginal Corporation – to raise $150,000 to purchase this important site.
The land will be owned by Nalderun, an Aboriginal organisation based in Castlemaine, on Dja Dja Wurrung lands in the Mt. Alexander Shire, Victoria. It provides education and advocacy in support of Aboriginal children, young people and families, and delivers training and support to the broader community on different ways we can see and be in the world. These ways hold and honour Country and bring about a sense of love and Community for all.
