Gary Namponan enjoys growing fruit and vegetables and is very proud of his garden.

He had seen other people in Aurukun building pergolas and using them for family gatherings so met with his local Pride of Place Enabler to find out more.

Through MPower, Gary is now saving up $1,000 to buy a maintenance kit and hopes to build a pergola himself.

Gary believes this project will make a positive difference for him and his family, and is looking forward to saving money to get more plants to add to his garden.

“Through MPower I am saving money to start a Pride of Place backyard blitz.”
