A Taste of Paradise would like to introduce you to one of new newest members our team Ali Moyle Larkin who joined us this year to assist in our farm management and cultural education work. We feel it is a great privilege to work with such a broad range of enthusiastic and good-hearted individuals and Ali is next in a long line of wonderful contributors who have played a role in shaping A Taste of Paradise.

Ali has just completed the Tour Da Country which is an outback bike ride raising awareness for healthy lifestyle choices in Aboriginal communities as well as to promoting reconciliation amongst all Australians. You can read more about the event here. Along with her team, Ali has ridden from Walgett to Menindee for the cause. We are very proud of her achievement.

We’re pleased to have Ali working with us as her deep understanding of her Aboriginal heritage helps us enormously when engaging with indigenous kids on the farm. Along with her children she has also painted the lots of animal pictures inside of our toilet block which always draws lots of complementary comments. We share her skills with the Illawarra Aboriginal Service and Warrigal Employment supporting families and children with disabilities, bringing them out to the farm and engaging them in the life of the animals and the produce that the farm provides.

Ali says:

I am passionate about helping my community heal and am currently studying to become a Holistic Counsellor. I am about to embark on an exciting adventure, an Aboriginal health initiative with the Tour Da Country bike ride. The Tour aims to raise awareness of healthy lifestyle choices in Aboriginal communities and to promote reconciliation amongst all Australians.
