We were excited to work with Bingo Industries in preparation for NAIDOC week 2023, with the creation of a beautiful Bush Food Garden, Yindyamarra Garden, at their head office in Auburn NSW, on Dharug Country. Yindyamarra means ‘respect’ and the intention of the garden was to foster respect for indigenous people, plants and culture.

We supplied five of our durable metal plant ID signs to accompany their chosen plants, and added the Bingo logo to each plant sign.

Bushfood plants in this garden were supplied by Muru Mittigar Nursery :

  • Native Raspberry- Rubus parvifolius
  • Mat Rush – Lomandra longifolia
  • Yam Daisy – Microseris lanceolata
  • Pigface – Carpobrotus glaucescens
  • Lemon Myrtle –  Backhousia citriodora 

First Nations artist Natalie Davis created the beautiful artwork used in this special Customised Welcome sign and also headed up the planning of project. The artwork has been explained by the artist in the reconciliation action plan.

  • “The yellow gum tree flowers remind us of the abundance that nature gives back when cared for and nurtured.
  • The white dotted lines represent BINGO and Australia’s journey towards true Reconciliation.
    The coloured dots represent the many countries, skin colours and backgrounds from which the BINGO Family come.
  • Each circle and oval motif represents an important element within BINGO’s Reconciliation
    journey, including the three pillars of our RAP – Opportunities, Relationships and Respect and our BINGO Way Values.
  • The blue area represents the many Aboriginal Nations that the BINGO Family live and work on.
    This circle represents the BINGO Family, how we work together, with respect and care for one
    another. “

You’ll find this colourful artwork throughout the Bingo website.

Others in the group included Amanda Ingrey, Yeena Kirkbright and Jacueline Nguyen.
