We’re always working on something new. Come see our projects - past, present and future.
A world-first Indigenous rooftop farm
We’re using the principles of Indigenous knowledge, collaborative design and permaculture to create and maintain the world’s first Indigenous rooftop farm for urban food production.
Located high above Sydney on the roof of Yerrabingin House, we’ve grown over 2,000 edible, medicinal or cultural plants. These will be delivered to restaurants around the South Eveleigh community and greater city, encouraging a renewed uptake and understanding of delicious, native bush tucker. We’re also offering workshops on Aboriginal culture, native permaculture, environmental sustainability and physical and mental health and well-being.
We’re committed to employing local Aboriginal people to support our operations. Our staff help with not just the maintenance of the farm and precinct gardens, but also with the development of new workshops and future projects.
Empowering our community
Cultural landscape garden
With a focus on collaborative design and ethno-botanical ecology, we’re also delivering the South Eveleigh Aboriginal Cultural Landscape Garden.
To aid the health of our farm, educate the community, and promote authentic Aboriginal cultural heritage, we’re maintaining threatened, endangered and culturally significant species of native medicinal plants and bush foods.
On completion, our guides will walk you through a living story of native Australia, demonstrating the beauty of our natural world through an interactive journey.
Yerrabingin has a strong focus on empowering our community through education. As well as practical experience for our employees, we’re researching the existing, natural and built values of our heritage to develop a range of educational programs.
These are syllabus-linked, and designed to be relevant to Learning Across Curriculum (LAC) areas for all stages of learning. Our particular areas of focus include Human Society and its Environment, History, Geography, Agriculture and Food Technologies.
Links to the Tribal Warrior Association will provide further occasion for local Aboriginal community members to gain cultural knowledge and tourism industry experience.
