Lanser partners with Ngopamuldi Aboriginal Corporation


Lanser is thrilled to announce a partnership with the Ngopamuldi Aboriginal Corporation (NAC) – a Murray

Bridge based business established to increase the capacity and participation of Aboriginal people in the

management of natural resources in South Australia.


Our team is excited to collaborate with Ngopamuldi to provide a broad selection of trees and plants from the

NAC nursery to our developments across South Australia, beginning with Aston Hills and Miravale. In doing so,

we can deliver long-lasting cultural connections as well as training and employment opportunities.


At Lanser, our philosophy is to build lifestyle destinations that create opportunities for a better quality of life

for the community, and a positive and enduring legacy for South Australia. Our developments are designed to

increase the community’s connections with each other and the natural environment.


By introducing a range of medicinal and edible native plants into our landscaping designs across our

developments, we hope to strengthen the community’s interest and connection not only with the versatility of

these plants, but their rich history also.


As we launch our partnership, we’re delighted to introduce a range of native and non-native species

propagated at NAC to Aston Hills, Mount Barker and Miravale at Angle Vale. Native species include:


Clematis Microphylla – ‘Old Man’s Beard’

This climbing plant can be boiled as a drink for flus and colds. The plant’s steamed leaves can be

applied to aches and pains, and can also be dried and used in a meat rub similar to dried chillis.


Olearia Axillaris – ‘Blue Bush’

This medicinal plant is a natural insect repellent when the leaves are burned or rubbed directly onto

skin and is often used in smoking ceremonies.


Rhagodia – ‘Salt Bush’

Fruits can be eaten or crushed as a dye and the foliage can be used in salads or dried and used as a

cooking rub.


Tetragonia Implexicoma – ‘Native Spinach’

The leaves from this ground cover plant can be used in salads.
