In this Solidarity Session, we talk to Murray Prior of Nguuruu Farm about their partnership with Girrawah Paul House – a Ngambri (Walgalu), Wallabalooa (Ngunnawal) and Wiradjuri (Erambie) custodian. Paul and Murray work together to heal country and challenge colonial approaches to Land. Through the partnership, Paul and his people have access to Country and a parcel of land to manage as they choose, while Nguuruu Farm receive Paul’s guidance in their journey to understand their land.
How can farmers work to support First Peoples’ sovereignty, build relationships with the Traditional Custodians of the land on which they work, and collaborate to care for Country?
Building these relationships are key to healing land, require deep listening, and assist in moving towards a more honest and truthful accounting of the stories the Land holds.
