Time Out says

The first ever Indigenous rooftop garden dedicated to native plants is open to the public and you can take a tour of it every week

Christian Hampson and Clarence Slockee have taken over the rooftop of a brand-new building in Eveleigh to transform it into a 500m2 planting box housing finger limes, warrigal greens, saltbush, rivermint, native raspberries and sea figs. 

They’re the founders of Sydney’s first native plant rooftop farm, which started out in April 2019 with 2,000 plants and over 30 species. Yerrabingin means ‘we walk together’ in Muktung, from Hampson’s grandparents’ language. “It’s about the time when the first people and the first spirits walked the earth and they were taught about how to look after the land. It’s about knowledge transferring, and about collaborating.”

The space is open to the public – many of whom come up for a peaceful lunch break – and you can book into a weekly tour at 12.30pm on Fridays for $15.
