With all our projects the Earth Trust is committed to working respectfully in bringing together ancient knowledge with current scientific research on environmental issues.

We look to support projects in keeping with our purpose.

In particular we seek projects that provide a respectful way for Indigenous custodial wisdom to inform a more Earth friendly way of walking in our world today.

From listening to and learning from Elders we have come to know that they hold solutions, which are Earth sensitive, sensible and cost effective.

We support the development of Indigenous enterprises designed to solve some of our major environmental issues around land and water management.

Such enterprises are to be developed within the community networks that already exist. Every step of their formation, be they corporate entities or organisations, is with the advice of the local Custodial Elders. This includes support for management by the local Indigenous people.

Elders serve as advisors. They decide what to impart and when and to whom.
