Goolmerrng is Miriwoong for bush grape – a small plant with broad leaves that grows in the wet season and produces a juicy, grape-like fruit. Goolmerrng sponsors donate $1000 or more in support of our language revitalisation activities.
This can help us produce bilingual and trilingual ebooks, develop new teaching materials to deliver to children in schools, develop new resources, and cover the cost of fieldtrips where we document our elders talking in Language about Country and Culture.
We would like to say a big thank you to our Goolmerrng Sponsors:
“Sponsoring MDWg and including Miriwoong translations on signage is a natural fit with our celebration of ‘local’ in all its forms. We hope it raises awareness in our guests and our staff of the important work of MDWg.”
Fiona Kuiper, Country Club Resort Manager.
