           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.

           And through all these actions – and there’s more of them – are the stories of everyone who
           enrols and finishes a course and is inspired and makes some little change or shows someone                      ON
