While still in the works, one woman has been the power behind an idea hoped to change the landscape of Aboriginal women's empowerment in Tamworth.
Kaliela Thornton was sitting at home one day, a rare moment of peace, and said the thought just sprung into her mind.
"It was just there," she laughed.
It's hoped the garden will have a sensory path, a fire pit for cooking, a seated area for reflection plus a whole array of native plants.
"I'd heard a lot of the women talking about how there are groups and activities for the men in our communities, but not a lot for women.
"So I thought, I'll do something about that."
I believe that cultural identity and the loss of it plays a big part in Tamworth, with a lot of shame in fear of not knowing where they came from.Kaliela Thornton
And so, she canvassed the female Elders for their opinion. Ms Thornton told the Leader they thought it was a brilliant idea and were "over the moon" at the prospect. With big vision, they are starting small but sturdy.
"I believe that cultural identity and the loss of it plays a big part in Tamworth, with a lot of shame in fear of not knowing where they came from, so this will establish a place for learning and teaching, a place for sharing knowledge without judgement."
She's already put in an expression of interest to use a two acre block of land, and while everything has yet to be organised, it looks incredibly promising.
With the Gomeroi Yinaar Landcare Group awarded a $2500 grant from Tamworth Regional Landcare Association for educational, cultural and environmental activities, the ball is still rolling forward.
They've just put out a competition for a logo design for the project, with an event still in planning to launch the project.
"I just can't wait to get my hands dirty now!" Ms Thorton laughed.
