David Guilfoyle, NRM ‘Restoring Connections’ project co-ordinator has organised this very significant trip of Noongar women into the Pallinup valley, visiting important sites where many of them had lived and worked before, and to Greening Australia’s Nowanup property. Most of the women live in Albany, and for many it was their first trip out to country in a very long time. One of the families present was represented by four generations. The women particularly enjoyed seeing the work that is being done to help revegetate the property.
