It has been two years since Colin Peemuggina and his mother, Delma, completed their POP Backyard Blitz project in mid-2015.

During the Blitz, they worked hard, contributing over 100 hours of sweat equity to prepare the site, build furniture and a playground, paint and install bamboo screening, lay paving, build garden beds and clean up.

Colin has now moved into his own residence, where he has started another gardening project.

Meanwhile, Delma continues to take pride in her POP garden, ensuring it is well maintained with mowed lawns and healthy plants.

In 2016, she entered Aurukun’s Best Garden in the Village competition and ended up taking out top prize—a testament to her continued commitment and hard work.
