Our grandmothers’ stories teach us about Aboriginal women’s ways of being in our many worlds. Some of the stories in this collection are held in spoken histories, others in archival material, recontextualised with living katitjin. Some are held in my imagination. They are fragments of the many stars in my grandmothers’ constellations. I track my grandmothers’ stars to find my bidi home.
Homecoming pieces together fragments of stories about four generations of Noongar women and explores how they navigated the changing landscapes of colonisation, protectionism, and assimilation to hold their families together.
This seminal collection of poetry, prose and historical colonial archives, tells First Nations truths of unending love for children — those that were present, those taken, those hidden and those that ultimately stood in the light.
Homecoming speaks to the intergenerational dialogue about Country, kin and culture. This elegant and extraordinary form of restorative story work amplifies Aboriginal women’s voices, and enables four generations of women to speak for themselves. This sublime debut highlights the tenacity of family as well as First Nation’s agency to resist, survive and renew.
Micropod aims to bring indoor gardening into people’s homes and to inspire a healthy lifestyle. Operating out of our small warehouse in Sydney, our hydroponic microgreen growing kits are our way of sharing what we’ve discovered to empower anyone, anywhere to grow their own fresh microgreens using our fun, easy and sustainable process.
Inspired by indoor farming and increased apartment-living, we wanted to put a new spin on at-home gardening – how about directly from your kitchen bench? Much like ourselves, we found that there were many people that also wanted the benefits of home-grown greens, but they lacked the space, time, climate or know-how.
Sustainability was considered for every part of the Micropod product. From the packaging, to the product itself, having an environmentally friendly product was essential for us as we do our small part to help our planet and improve the lives of animals and humans everywhere.
