Lanser partners with Ngopamuldi Corporation
Lanser is thrilled to announce a partnership with the Ngopamuldi Aboriginal Corporation (NAC) – a Murray Bridge based business established to increase the capacity and participation of Aboriginal people in the management of natural resources in South Australia.
Our team is excited to collaborate with Ngopamuldi to provide a broad selection of trees and plants from the NAC nursery to our developments across South Australia, beginning with Aston Hills and Miravale. In doing so, we can deliver long-lasting cultural connections as well as training and employment opportunities.
At Lanser, our philosophy is to build lifestyle destinations that create opportunities for a better quality of life for the community, and a positive and enduring legacy for South Australia. Our developments are designed to increase the community’s connections with each other and the natural environment.
By introducing a range of medicinal and edible native plants into our landscaping designs across our developments, we hope to strengthen the community’s interest and connection not only with the versatility of these plants, but their rich history also.
As we launch our partnership, we’re delighted to introduce a range of native and non-native species propagated at NAC to Aston Hills, Mount Barker and Miravale at Angle Vale. Native species include:
Clematis Microphylla – ‘Old Man’s Beard’
This climbing plant can be boiled as a drink for flus and colds. The plant’s steamed leaves can be applied to aches and pains, and can also be dried and used in a meat rub similar to dried chillis.
Olearia Axillaris – ‘Blue Bush’
This medicinal plant is a natural insect repellent when the leaves are burned or rubbed directly onto skin and is often used in smoking ceremonies.
Rhagodia – ‘Salt Bush’
Fruits can be eaten or crushed as a dye and the foliage can be used in salads or dried and used as a cooking rub.
Tetragonia Implexicoma – ‘Native Spinach’
The leaves from this ground cover plant can be used in salads.
