PEO­PLE AROUND TOWN

Myrtleford Times - - NEWS - Ju­lian Bau

What is your job? I am cur­rently em­ployed with the Alpine Shire Coun­cil.

I am em­ployed as a gar­dener in Bright but I am cur­rently back­fill­ing the po­si­tion of Open Spa­ces Team Leader in Myrtle­ford.

I am re­spon­si­ble (with my team) for the main­te­nance of parks, gar­dens and open space ar­eas in Myrtle­ford and sur­rounds

What brought you to this job?

I had started out here in Myrtle­ford at the golf course as an ap­pren­tice but wanted to move back to this area.

I was em­ployed as a green keeper at the Co­bram/ Ba­rooga and Tocumal golf clubs.

A job came up at coun­cil for a gar­dener in Bright and I was for­tu­nate enough to se­cure the po­si­tion.

I have al­ways had a pas­sion for horticultu­re and have not looked back since the day I started with coun­cil.

What do you love about your job?

I love the va­ri­ety of work as no two days are the same.

I en­joy be­ing given the op­por­tu­nity to work in dif­fer­ent ar­eas of the Alpine Shire and the peo­ple I work with.

But the big­gest thing I love about my job is to do main­te­nance in a park or gar­den then look back once it is com­pleted to see the dif­fer­ence that I have achieved.

What else do you do in the com­mu­nity?

When I was much younger I played soc­cer for the Savoys but I am cur­rently not in­volved in any com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions.

I have a few small projects hap­pen­ing at home with mi­nor ren­o­va­tions and fam­ily that take up most of my time.
