WHO WE ARE
proud - passionate - powerful
Yunta Wulan Wildflowers are grow on the lands of the Ngarrindjeri Nation.
Winding through the lands and waters of the Lower River Murray, the Lower Lakes and the Coorong, our Nation's history dates back over 60,000 years.
We believe Our Lands, Our Waters, Our People, and All Living Things, are connected. We respect and care for our Ruwe (Country) and seek for others to do the same. Everything we do, we do for the wellbeing of Ngarrindjeri Ruwe.
Australian Wildflowers - Ngopamuldi Aboriginal Corporation
In the Ngarrindjeri language, Yunta Walun, means coming together. And so it was on the 30th of July, 2018, Australian Wildflowers and the Ngopamuldi Aboriginal Corporation, entered into a partnership agreement, trading as Yunta Walun.
The signing of the agreement took place at Raukkan, at the tip of the Coorong in South Australia. Raukkan is the home of the Ngarrindjeri people, a proud aboriginal nation whose ancestral lands follow the Murray River from Murray Bridge to the sea.
Yunta Walun has been formed after more than 15 months of talks between the two parties. Ngopamuldi Aboriginal Corporation is a private organisation that strives to drive employment outcomes for the Ngarrindjeri and wild flower production was identified as a way to enhance the skills of the current generation , utilise their existing assets including land, water and infrastructure and provide employment opportunities for the community into the future.
The partnership will grow a range of wild flowers for both the local and domestic market whilst also harvesting wild from the scrublands along the Coorong that the Ngarrindjeri currently manage.
We are very proud of this partnership and look forward to bringing to the market a range of new and exciting products that can enable the story of the Ngarrindjeri to be told, bringing language and traditional uses of wild flower products to the market.
So keep your eye out for Yipti (Reeds), Kaila (Acacia), Winggi Kuranthantha (Coastal Daisy), Kildjeri (Yakka Bush), Kolgi (Sheoak), and Muwanthi (Native Pine Tree) next time you visit your local wholesaler!
