Now that we have a new entry to the property, it was time to knock together a sign announcing the property’s name. In August 2014, we were granted the name Yarnauwi by Kaurna Warra Pintyanthi, a property name that both describes the landscape (“bald (hills) water”), and references the traditional meeting ground Yarnauwingga just beyond the back fence.
In the spirit of our intentions for the property, the sign is entirely constructed from materials salvaged from around the farm: a surviving piece of corrugated iron and timbers seasoned in the mud and sun of the gully floors. The text and logo are stencilled with spray-paint. The rather wonky nature of the timbers made it tricky to hang, but we’re reasonably confident it’s level-ish. Give it a honk next time you’re passing!
