Woodside Volunteer Develops Horticulture Business Plan for Wongutha CAPS
Wongutha CAPS (Christian Aboriginal Parent-directed School) provides education and training for Year 11-12 students from remote Aboriginal communities throughout Western Australia. These students predominantly come from low socio-economic or disadvantaged backgrounds. The school based in Esperance engaged Volunteering WA to get a skilled volunteer on board to help develop a Horticulture Business Plan to enable them to develop a productive and sustainable vegetable garden and orchard. This area would not only support the school, but could also potentially produce fruit and vegetables that could be marketed and sold commercially.
