Shoppers at the Albany Farmers’ Market are invited to try a range of cakes and sweets made with bushfoods such as Quandongs and saltbush.
They were created after young Aboriginal from Ngaanyatjarra Lands School in the Western Desert came to Albany to join local Worklink students this week.
Worklink WA hosted the Djinda Ngardak business innovation workshop on Tuesday to introduce students to the world of business and entrepreneurship.
It provided training and an opportunity for students to collaborate while learning about native Bushfoods and indigenous culture at Worklink’s Centennial Park facility.
Curtin, Murdoch, and Edith Cowan Universties provided the speakers.
Sharing culture and learning business skills
Djinda Ngardak representative Cath MacDougall said the collaboration between the universities, Worklink and Djinda Ngaradak provided students with a forum to learn from each other’s culture as well as gain valuable business skills.
“Education is key,” she said.
Worklink Training manager Wendy Tripplett said it was about getting students ready for work, working with partner organisations to create opportunities and experience.
