Meet Michael

I have over 20 years of experience achieving outcomes through collaboration and partnerships with private enterprise, community groups, as a general and executive member of several NGO’s, as a previous chair of the local tourism association and as a director of the regional tourism body. I have a strong background in governance and finance.

Currently, as the manager of Geeveston Community Centre, and the owner of the award winning Huon Bush Retreats, I work with the community to build options focusing on sustainable, locally owned enterprise. Through this work, I engage with all stakeholder levels from Government to individual residents. I am energetic and passionate, have the necessary skills, and a solid understanding of the role of local government.

Literacy Coordinator and Youth Activities Worker

Meet Lucy

I have worked at the Geeveston Community Centre since 2013. I teach adults reading, writing, maths and computer skills.  I strongly believe in our potential to keep learning, no matter what our age!  I also run the school holiday activities which really comes as second nature-I’m just a big kid, really! If you see me at GeCo please say hi, I’m always keen to help! 

Meet Paul

I’ve worked at GeCo since 2018, firstly as a volunteer and more recently as a member of staff providing administrative and logistics support to Scrubby Hill Farm. When I’m not working on Scrubby Hill Farm ‘stuff’ I also volunteer at the front desk and (most importantly) do odd jobs for Michael!

Meet Krystal

Krystal runs Scrubby Hill Farm, helps Lucy out with 26Ten and is also our newest Community Care Advisor! Krystal shares her time between Kingston and Geeveston’s Neighbourhood Houses and along with her trusted sidekick Patch, has a love of the outdoors, a good festival and is passionate about Food Security. Krystal has been with GeCo since 2020. 

Meet Trish

I have been volunteering and consulting with GeCo since 2020, and in July 2021 I was delighted to join the team as a staff member! I started teaching digital literacy and my role has steadily developed. I now also manage all the events and workshops we run at GeCo, and I’m the editor of the Newsletter. I’m so excited to bring as many activities to the community as I can, and I’m always ready to hear new ideas.

Community is a driving focus for me and I’m really proud to call Geeveston home and take an active role in how we live and do things. I’m part of the Geeveston Progress Association, the Neighbourhood Watch and the Geeveston Art Show Committee as well as serving on the Board for the Geeveston Town Hall Company. 

Come down for a cuppa and a chat on Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays!
