Amanda Cuyler has recently joined VEG on a part-time basis. Technically our administration assistant, Amanda is also a qualified classroom teacher (with current Victorian Institute of Teachers registration) and extensive early childhood experience. She has worked as a garden educator within a number of Melbourne primary schools and has taught permaculture in a range of community contexts. With a passion for organic gardening and a gift for working with young children, she incorporates music, dance, and action into fun lessons that garden activities into the curriculum and provide professional development for the teachers, classroom assistants and cooks. It’s a pleasure to have her on board, and it feels very healthy for VEG to have a female touch.
