Our co-ordinators are researching the
latest in so many fields – sustainability,
creativity, community services, IT – and
are even creating that edge in many
areas. We’re pretty proud of that.
Because that’s what we aim to be:
active. And we like to have an ear to
the ground to hear what people need.
That’s what we mean, too. Left: The 2009 Certificate III Hoticulture class.
We’re kind of political without the politics, in that we go and see what needs to be done, and
find ways to make it happen. And then, always – and this is our point, our reason – find a way to
teach and share that information, in a way that’s about doing; getting stuff done. And another
secret: getting it done in a way that’s fun. Director: Richard Vinycomb

Governments are taking notice as well. They’re asking us to take some of the things we do here,
and the way we do them, and to teach those things to people around the country. It’s nice that
they’re noticing. It’s even nicer that it’s opening doors and spreading the action.
