Tennant Creek, NT

Implemented in partnership with the Northern Territory Department of Education the Food Ladder system is situated at the Juno Centre, an agricultural training centre 10kms from Tennant Creek.

As part of the alternative education pathway for local students, pupils visit the custom-designed Food Ladder system each week to access fresh produce and increase their job readiness through STEM, nutrition and horticulture lessons.

In keeping with increased efforts to cultivate bush foods traditionally grown in the Northern Territory, the Tennant Creek Food Ladder and the surrounding grounds focus on foods native to the region.
