About IndigiGrow

IndigiGrow native plant initiative was established in 2018 and is based at La Perouse Public School, Sydney. IndigiGrow, is a social enterprise from First Hand Solutions Aboriginal Corporation. It sustains people, land, and culture through the propogation and growing of native plants, including bush foods and the critically endangered Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub (ESBS). IndigiGrow has been operating at La Perouse in Sydney for 5 years.

IndigiGrow employs 10 local Aboriginal staff including 7 Aboriginal apprentices. It operates an online shop and also has retail & wholesale outlets. The retail nursery is at La Perouse Public School and the wholesale nursery at Matraville Sports High School opening 21 January 2023.

IndigiGrow is underpinned by Culture, Connection to Country & Caring for Country while utilising native plants with objectives to pass down traditional knowledge and stories from elders to our young apprentices that instill a strong cultural foundation and connection to country whilst building their resilience and identity.
