Wominjeka Reconciliation Garden

Why The Garden in The Heart?

We are creating a space in the heart of the city for the garden in our heart to blossom & bloom for all who take the time to sit & listen. The Wominjeka Garden is a reconciliation garden dedicated to the process of reconciliation with First Nations People.


We have been working on the garden for several years and thanks to generous support the garden is now growing vigorously.
