A CENTRE encouraging learning for Aboriginal families is blossoming in Girrawheen.
The Miya Kaadadjiny Learning Sanctuary helps community members learn cooking, craft sewing and gardening every Sunday.
The centre is planning a community garden.
The importance of the centre has been recognised by local politicians who recently contributed funds for a new stove after supervisor Angela Ryder put the call out for assistance.
Girrawheen MLA Margaret Quirk helped coordinate the purchase, with local white goods retailer Jonathan Andony offering a generous discount and arranging free delivery.
