Celebrating the Indigenous Garden at Cherry Tree Grove

For National Reconciliation Week this year, Cherry Tree Grove Retirement Living residents and Aveo team members, as well as visiting residents from Mingarra Retirement Living, came together in a heartfelt celebration. This was Cherry Tree Grove’s first time holding a National Reconciliation Week event, it was brimming with hope and symbolism as they celebrated their new indigenous community garden through a planting ceremony. 

The morning tea was not just about planting native seedlings; it was a profound gesture of the community's dedication to healing and stride towards equality. Residents gathered, each taking a native seedling in hand and planting it as part of the garden, symbolising their collective commitment to fostering understanding, respect, and unity. 

We were honoured to have Ben Moodie, a local indigenous performer share his insights into indigenous culture, reminding us of the rich heritage that has shaped our land and also play a captivating musical piece on the Yidaki (Didgeridoo). After the ceremony, residents, Ben and the Aveo team enjoyed a morning tea featuring delicious lemon myrtle damper scones, fresh fruits and more. 

Reconciliation is a journey for all Australians, embracing our diversity and honouring our history. Each step forward, no matter how small, contributes to a more just and unified nation. This garden, now teeming with promise and new life, serves as a living testament to the aspirations for the future at Cherry Tree Grove. 

Together, we can create a future build on mutual respect and inclusivity for all.
