Ian Browne, former Nimbin resident now working in Darwin has been teaching Aboriginal children horticulture, but finds that the 'kids' have been teaching him as much about bush tucker and remedies as they have been learning from him. An environmental project with the Darwin Botanical gardens is about to go up on the web, and next term the team will be doing a multimedia video project.
A far cry from recent media reports that the education system is 'collapsing' around the aboriginal communities. Darwin educators are not impressed!
