This is my new house. My Grandfather Charlie is very happy for his new house.
My family is so proud of their new garden. Everyone is stopping to say hello and look at our garden.
Everyone is making new gardens at their new houses and taking home seeds from school. Galiwin’ku loves gardens!

My new home feels strong and safe.

Me and Gerad we went to the garden then we went to the shed and collecting the shovel and we went to doing woodchips at the boring deck area.
Then we went to the classroom. We were working hard and it was fun because we were working together.

In week 5 in term 2 we started designing the garden, but I thought it was so hard and kids couldn’t make the new garden.
But now it is week 5 in term 3 and it is looking beautiful! We have been getting new garden tools and we have been moving woodchips and putting them near the deck.
The chickens are feeling good and happy too! I like the chickens and I like to feed them. They are very friendly.

The emergency helpers are taking down the tents.
The people who were staying in the tents went to their new houses and they have new furniture and washing machines in their houses. They have new kitchens and kitchen things and they have new toilets too!
Me and my little family went to the new houses to have a look. They have 3 bed rooms and they are really flash.
The cyclone went to Milingimbi too and it went down to the Maningrida. But now everything is finally getting fixed up and the community is very happy for that. Now we can have the oval back for football and water the very dead grass too.

Yesterday at the Mulch Pit Garden, we were happy to see lots of plants that we also grow in our school garden and at our house.
We saw eggplants, loofah, chillies, pawpaws, pumpkins, sweet leaf, lemongrass, beans, pineapple, sweet potatoes and basil and lots more!
We were talking to the ladies that grow vegetables there because they cant grow them at their house and they like to work together with other people from the community. We also learnt about different kinds of spinach and we ate some pretty flowers.
We also saw lots of art like mosaics. And we loved the ways they made shade out of recycled things like the washing lines.
I love the decorated trees because it makes me feel great and we did that to our trees too after the cyclones.
Thankyou to the Mulch Pit workers for letting us see you beautiful garden.
Right now it is nice and cool and we cant wait to go to the markets and to the festival!
